Spaghetti squash casserole is a healthy, gluten-free and low carb dinner, replacing traditional pasta casserole recipes. This easy gluten-free casserole recipe uses turkey sausage and mushrooms, making it a healthier version of baked ziti.
It’s Improv Challenge day for March, and this month everyone is cooking up recipes using sausage and mushrooms. I’m guessing there won’t be any desserts this time around. My inspiration was the classic baked ziti, with all of its saucy, cheesy goodness, and stepped it up a bit in flavor and nutrition. Whether you want leftovers to put in the freezer or have to feed a crowd, you’ve gotta try this Turkey Sausage and Mushroom Spaghetti Squash Casserole.
Awesome recipe. Just need to know when you freeze it do you bake it first?
With traditional baked pasta recipes you can usually do either, but in this case I recommend baking it first, but don’t let it get fully browned on top.
Where is the recipe???
Kathleen, the recipe is on the second page of the post. There is a link to click at the bottom of the first page. Here’s the link for you: https://cupcakesandkalechips.com/turkey-sausage-mushroom-spaghetti-squash-casserole/2/
I have scrolled through the page from top to bottom over and over but I just cannot see the recipe.
I’m sorry you had difficulty seeing the recipe, Kathleen. There’s a large font at the bottom of the post that says “CLICK TO CONTINUE READING”. If you click that, it will take you to the recipe. 🙂
Believe me. I clicked that. I searched high and low for the recipe. I even clicked on Get Ingredients, but that’s something else. Thanks anyway for replying.
the link no longer seems to be working. I would have made this for dinner if the recipe were visible somewhere
I’m so sorry that you had trouble finding the recipe, Ann.
I make zucchini lasagna (zucchini cut lengthwise in place of the pasta) all the time like this & the other night i made zucchini baked spaghetti. I have a veggetti (walmart) & you put your veggie in & turn till it makes strings like pasta. I love it & all my kids loved it also, although they are not super picky. I like spaghetti squash but my kids are not in love with it. I also make cauliflower pizza (cauliflower crust) which bbq chicken, bacon, & cheese is everyone’s favorite in my house 🙂
Finally made this tonight and it was fantastic! My husband loves spaghetti squash, but I’ve never been a fan. Every now and then, I make it for him, but this is the first time I’ve ever enjoyed it! In fact, I had three servings (yikes). So glad I found this on Pinterest. Thank you!
Oh yay! So glad you found it, made it, and loved it!
What size squash did you use pound wise?
Hmm, not sure. It wasn’t one of those small, more round, about 6-8 inch ones, but it wasn’t huge. Darn, should have thrown it on the scale!
wow! I don’t know if my fellas would eat spaghetti squash, either… “We are noodle folk” is what they always say. 🙂
As long as I tell the hubby we are having spaghetti squash and don’t try to pass it off as noodles, he likes it. The 3 year old will just have to deal 🙂
I love spaghetti squash and this is such a creative casserole! I love it! What a great use of this month’s ingredients. This sounds wonderful. I’ll definitely be making this soon.
I’ve been wanting to try spaghetti squash but I haven’t found it where I live. Right now I am visiting my daughter in Providence and I picked one up in the grocery store last night. Can’t wait to try your recipe! I’ll have to adapt because she’s vegetarian but I think I can use some of those Smart Sausages since they have an Italian style recipe and it’s actually tasty.
Oh you have to try spaghetti squash. I really enjoy it prepared many ways!
I recently tried spaghetti squash for the first time and my family liked it, so I will have to add this into the rotation. Yummy!
It is a great veggie! Enjoy!
I love casseroles- great idea of a way to use spaghetti squash. Looks good!
Thanks Karen! Casseroles are always great!
This looks wonderful! I love the mozzarella and ricotta together. Two of my favorites!
Yes, they do work well together. Thanks!
This looks so doggone good – I love sausage and mushrooms together so this would hit the spot right now!
Sausage and mushrooms do go so well together.
I love spaghetti squash, too. Most of my kids will eat it in casserole form, it’s just when I leave it plain and then try to top it with a sauce that they start asking where the real pasta is hiding. Hopefully your little guy will change his mind with time. Then again, my 15 year old still won’t touch a mushroom, even when there is bribery involved.
I’m hoping I can bring him over to my side one day!
What a great way to cook with spaghetti squash, love it!
Thanks so much! We love it in a baked “pasta” dish (well, except that pesky 3 year old).
