- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1 can (28-ounce) tomato sauce
- 2 cans (4-ounce) tomato paste
- 1 can (28-ounce) diced tomatoes

- 1 tsp sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
TOPPINGS OF CHOICE
- Italian sausage
- Black olives
- Diced onions
- Diced bell peppers
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- In a glass baking dish, place the spaghetti squash halves cut-side down.
- Fill the baking dish with water to about ½-inch up the sides of the squash.
- Cover the pan with foil, and bake for 30-40 minutes or until softened.
- Meanwhile, make the spaghetti sauce. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
- Add the onion, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
- Add the garlic and parsley, and stir to combine with the onion.
- Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, oregano, basil, rosemary, sea salt, and pepper. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
- Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the heat, let cool, and spoon the sauce into mason jars.
- When the squash is done, remove it from the baking dish with tongs, and transfer it to a plate to cool.
- Cook any toppings that need to be precooked, such as sausage, peppers, and mushrooms. When cool, place them in separate containers.
- Separate the strands of spaghetti squash by running a fork from the stem end to the bottom of the squash, scraping as you go. Remove the loose strands, and place them in an airtight container.
- Store the squash, sauce, smoky fall spice and topping containers in the freezer until needed.
- Thaw the squash, sauce, and toppings in the refrigerator overnight.
- When ready to cook, reheat the squash and toppings on the stovetop or in the microwave.
- To assemble, place a spoonful of squash in a bowl and top it with spaghetti sauce and your favorite toppings. Enjoy the pizza pile flavor without the heavy crust!
