21 Day Fix Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Get all the flavors of lasagna with this low carb, 21 Day Fix Spaghetti Squash Lasagna dish! It’s gluten-free, grain-free, keto friendly and perfect for anyone who wants to indulge in delicious pasta dinners without the carbs.
Discard seeds from the squash and use a fork to remove your “spaghetti.” To remove excess moisture from the squash, place it in a clean kitchen towel and give it a squeeze. Then season the squash with a little salt and pepper.
Stir an egg, parmesan cheese, and a sprinkle of pepper into the ricotta.
Preheat your oven to 375. Spray a casserole dish with a olive oil cooking spray and begin the layering process.
First, spoon about half of your sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish.
Next, add the cooked sausage. Layer spaghetti squash over the sausage then add the rest of the sauce and some fresh chopped basil.
Finally, top sauce with the ricotta cheese mixture and then add the shredded mozzarella.
Bake until cheese is melty and bubbly – about 15-20 mins. To brown the cheese, broil on low for 5-10 minutes at the end, but watch carefully. It sneaks up on you!
Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes. If there is excess water at the bottom of your pan, you can carefully try to drain it out from the corner of the pan or serve with a slotted spoon.
Hi Kelli!! Here’s how I make my squash – 1. Using a sharp knife, cut slits all over the squash. 2. Microwave for 10-20 mins- checking periodically. When it’s done, it will feel like a ripe avocado. 3. Let it cool. Then slice it in half and remove the seeds. 4. Finally, use a fork to shred it and make spaghetti!
Hi! Hmmm…I can usually find the sausage in any grocery store. My favorite is from The Fresh Market, but don’t get to go there much. I would add italian seasoning and maybe some crushed red pepper! Also- this is written for 4 servings, so divide it into 4 portions for the container count!! Hope this helps!!
I made this last night and found so much liquid in the bottom of the pan. I also had a very hard time figuring out some of the directions or lack of them. Everyone really liked it but those were my issues with this dish.
Hi Nancy – thank you for your feedback! I will take a look at the directions to see how to improve them for other readers. Also, you can use cheese cloth or a clean kitchen towel to remove some of the liquid from the squash. Hope that helps!! Thanks!!
Hi! I actually don’t count calories, so no…but I have been getting a lot of requests for this. Maybe I will have to add this info in the future! Try loading it into my fitness pal. So happy it was a hit!!
So I made this last night and WOW is it ever good! The spaghetti squash I found were so small, so I got two and that was perfect. My husband and I both are on the 21 day fix diet. We are thrilled to have found this recipe and your site! Thank you so much. Oh and mine was not to runny, it was perfect!
I tried this last night and absolutely LOVED IT! I used about 2 cups of my homemade marinara sauce (I am a huge fan of everything SAUCE), and I used some extra cheese, too. OH and I used ground beef instead of sausage. My spaghetti squash also likely yielded more than 4 cups of squash – I will definitely have 6-8 servings in my pan (I measure each serving about 1 1/4 green container or so).
IT IS SO DELICIOUS. (I even forgot to squeeze the water out of the squash before baking and it still turned out great). I think it’d be hard to go wrong with this recipe!! ?? Thank you!
According to your written directions, the order for layering this lasagna is:
It seemed weird to have all the cheese at the top, but that’s what I did, against my better judgment. After I was finished, I noticed that this didn’t match up with your photos below the directions at all! Wish I would have seen the photos first, but that’s my whole fault for not being thorough, I guess. ??
But aside from the weird layering issue, the flavor is really good when I mix it all together! Will definitely try this again!
Hey – so after making this again different ways, we decided we liked the cheese best on top, so I changed the directions. Maybe what I will do in the future is give two options? Thanks for your feedback!!
I just found this recipe on Pinterest and made it tonight. It’s amazing! My husband and three year daughter loved it, too. I used the 21 Day Fix sauce recipe and it turned out great. The tip about ringing the squash in a dishcloth was super helpful as well. I seriously haven’t loved a new recipe this much in a long time! Thank you so much and keep up the great work!
The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
