Crowd Pleasing Millionaire Spaghetti: Low Carb and Trim Healthy Mama S!

This amazing, crowd-pleasing millionaire spaghetti is so good and low carb/trim healthy mama s!

I made this recipe for a group of teens (and adults). This group can often be picky! Everyone, including my family, that tried it, loved it. This is the recipe I will be taking to our ladies retreat for Italian night. It is that delicious comfort food type of meal. Absolutely perfect for get-togethers, Sunday lunches, or just a cozy night on the couch.

I did use dreamfields spaghetti noodles.

My family (including my hubby) are not fans of spaghetti squash or zoodles. If you are wanting to make 2 pans so you can use different noodles, that would definitely be possible, but a little bit more work for you. I used to do that but when life gets crazy, I just can’t make that work. I think this would be great with spaghetti squash. I think spaghetti squash bakes nicely in dishes like this.

There are a lot of variations out there for millionaire spaghetti.

I saw recipes using cheddar cheese, multiple layers like lasagna, and so many other variations. I wanted to keep this somewhat like the majority but also simple. I also tried to make this a bit more budget friendly. Instead of using 2 jars of marinara I used 1 jar and 1 can of petite diced tomatoes. I used Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage (I found some on clearance) but you can use whatever ground meat you have. If you only have plain ground meat, add some salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to it. Now, on to the recipe.
