Creamy Bacon Spaghetti Squash Casserole and Weekly Meal Plan

What's for dinner, y'all?!
Last week, I asked y'all to share what kind of recipes you want. I promised to include them in my meal plan and share for you. One request was for casseroles that include veggies instead of pasta.
Casseroles don't tend to be the healthiest food options, but there are plenty of ways to get creative making them more nutritious.

So, here is a Creamy Bacon Spaghetti Squash casserole that will surely make your mouth water! You can even make this one egg free if someone in your family has food allergies like ours. My little guy is allergic to eggs, dairy, and wheat. It can be scary but doesn't keep us from enjoying delicious food. Some of my best advice for food allergy moms or even picky eater is don't let specific ingredients hold you back from preparing a recipe that your family will enjoy. There is likely an alternative and way that you can make it your own!
For this recipe, I used the Vegan Egg, plant-based egg replacer. This is my go-to egg replacer lately, because the texture is closest to whisked eggs. You can check it out here.
Let me know if you try the recipe and if you used an egg replacer or actual egg.

INGREDIENTS
3 cups cooked spaghetti squash
8 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
1 1/2 cups steamed broccoli florets

Sauce
1 cup full fat coconut milk (from can)
1 medium egg (or egg replacer - flax egg would not work for this)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
fresh ground pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat over to 400.
2. Place spaghetti squash, bacon, and steamed broccoli into casserole dish.
3. In a saucepan whisk together all sauce ingredients.
4. Heat the sauce over medium heat and whisk while it cooks for 3-5 minutes. If using an egg replacer less is more or it will curdle.
5. Pour the creamy sauce over the casserole.
6. Place in the oven or about 10 minutes or until warm. Enjoy!

As for my meal plan, it has been turned into a favorite this week. Some weeks I enjoy what I planned more than others. I think it is important to plan foods that work with your weekly schedule, travel dates, and time of year. This meal plan was super simple, full of less expensive ingredients, and full of flavor!
