Ingredients
  

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound grass-fed 75% ground beef
  • 1/2 pound NAG-free Italian Sausage
  • 1-3 zucchini chopped
  • 1/2 fennel bulb minced
  • 3/4 cup frozen chopped spinach defrosted and drained
  • 36 ounces prepared Nomato sauce 1/2 cup reserved
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon No-Salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasonings
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese divided
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded and divided
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • Slice ends off the squash, then cut widthwise into halves or rings. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Place squash on rimmed baking sheet. Coat each piece with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir beef, sausage, fennel and zucchini until meat is browned, about 7 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/2 of the sauce and seasonings, then cover and set aside.
  • Peel the squash's skin away and separate the strands into long “spaghetti noodles”.
  • For the white mix: Whisk eggs, Parmesan cheese, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese and butter in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Mix squash 'noodles,' spinach, mayonnaise, sour cream, and remaining sauce and toss to coat.
  • Place half the noodle mixture into baking dish. Top with half the 'white mix' followed by the meat sauce. Repeat layers.
  • Pour reserved sauce over top, and sprinkle mixed cheddar and remaining mozzarella cheeses.
  • Cover and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
  • Remove cover and continue to bake until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes longer.

Notes

This is a complete meal of itself; but a nice refreshing salad is a great accompaniment.
