Throwback Week

This week I have decided to post one of my favorite recipes every day! I am feeling extra tired and will be busy with doTERRA for the next few days so my dinners will be quick or from my freezer.

So let's go back to some of my favorites :)

We will kick off Throwback Week with an oldie but a goodie.


 "Spaghetti Squash Heaven". 

For this recipe you will need: 
-3 hot italian chicken sausages 
-1 onion 
-1 bag of spinach 
-1 can of quartered artichokes 
-1 small can halved olives
-1 jar of sundried tomatoes 
-1 jar of Arrabiatta Tomato Sauce (we used one with less than 5 ingredients that is Paleo) 
-1 pack of cherry tomatoes 
-1 pack of mushrooms 
-5 cloves of garlic 
-2 spaghetti squashes 
-A few sprigs of fresh parsley 
-Garlic salt 
-Oregano 
-Basil 

So for this recipe I began by cutting the squash- adding some olive oil and sticking them in oven at 400 degrees. Then I started cooking the sausage- I just filled the pan up with a little bit of water. While the sausage was cooking I chopped the garlic, onions and mushrooms.

 

 
                                                 
 After the sausage cooked I cut up the sausage and then added the onion and garlic to the leftover oil from the sausages.  I let the onions soften a bit and then I added the spinach. Then I added the mushrooms, the artichoke, the mushrooms and the olives. After that Matt took out the squash (after about 30 min) let it cool and made it into spaghetti. Then I added about 1/4 of the sauce into the mixture, along with all my spices and let it simmer while the squash was cooling down.  We ended up accidentally making A TON! I think this could feed a family of 7! But instead it will be feeding us for a few days! 


 
The final product! I just poured the veggie/sausage mixture on top of the squash and we LOVED this!
