Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

So you’re trying to give up grains and pastas and wondering will I ever be able to eat spaghetti again???!!? The answer is yes, and it will be better than you think even without any pasta noodles! That’s right, spaghetti without any pasta and you won’t even know it. I served this meal to a high school kid who claimed to not like vegetables, and he didn’t even know the difference in this and regular spaghetti. He loved it and I’m sure you will to!

Spaghetti is one of those classic, easy weeknight meals that everyone loves and a meal that you can make a LOT of all at one time to last you throughout the week. If you know me, I am all about saving time in the kitchen and keeping things simple throughout the week, and this meal is one way to do it. Whip up a large batch of this to last you at least 3-4 dinner’s at the beginning of the week and you will be golden. Serve it with a large side salad or some roasted garlic potatoes if you’re craving something starchy to go along with it. I even like to eat this cold the next day for lunch sometimes. Yum.

Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti, serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 large spaghetti squash (Here’s what one looks like if you have no idea what I’m talking about )
  • 2 lbs. ground beef (grass-fed preferably. I buy mine here)
  • 1 large white onion, peeled and diced
  • 2, 14 oz. cans tomato paste ( I like this brand )
  • Italian Seasoning, approximately 1 T. or more. Adjust to your liking.
  • 3-4 cloves crushed garlic, or garlic salt to your liking

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425, cut your spaghetti squash in half down the middle lengthwise and spoon out all the seeds
  2. Place your spaghetti squash on a cookie sheet, open face down and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the outer shell is soft to the touch and the inner part of the squash peels apart like noodles with a fork
  3. While your spaghetti squash is cooking, sauté your onions until translucent and then add in your ground meat and cook through
  4. Once your meat is cooked, pour in your tomato paste and add your seasonings and stir to combine. Let simmer for about 5-10 more minutes to let the flavors combine.
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking
  6. Once the spaghetti squash is cooked, scrape out the noodles into a large bowl and pour your meat sauce over it and stir to combine
  7. Serve immediately or store in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week!

Now go make this and let me know if you can even tell the difference! More importantly let me know if your kids can because they are the tricky ones to get to eat healthy, but it starts with you the parent!
