Easy healthy pasta bake for 2! 


  • 2 oz penne pasta (about 3/4 cup cooked), cooked according to box
  • 2 precooked chicken sausages, quartered
  • 1 cup chopped spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup precooked spaghetti squash (read above for directions)
  • ~1/2 jar marinara sauce
  • Sea salt + pepper, to taste
  • 56 thin slices of fresh mozzarella
  • Oil for the pan


  1. Cook pasta according to box directions, strain and set aside.
  2. Lightly grease the pot the pasta was cooking in, then sauté chicken sausage until slightly crispy.
  3. Reduce heat to low then stir in spinach and allow to thaw (if frozen).  Turn off heat and stir in spaghetti squash, season with salt + pepper.
  4. Turn off heat and stir in marinara sauce and pasta. Spread mixture out in a small oval baking dish (any small baking dish will work).
  5. Top with mozzarella slices, then broil on high for about 10 minutes, until cheese is browned and bubbly. Be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn!
