Whether you’ve just started Paleo or you’ve been at it for a while there is nothing you’ll probably miss more that a good traditional pasta dish. This is a great alternative for the traditional spaghetti and meatball dish, it’s Paleo, GF and Egg Free. The best part is that it’s simple and fast to make.

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs grass-fed, ground beef (you can use ground turkey or chicken also)
1 spaghetti squash
1 1/2 tbps italian seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
pasta sauce (optional)

RECIPE

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine meat, italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Roll golf ball sized meatballs and place in a pyrex or glass baking dish.
Bake meatballs for 15 – 20 minutes until cooked fully.
While meatballs are cooking, cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop the middle out.
Place squash cut side down in a microwave safe dish and cover half way with water. Microwave for 7 -10 minutes. Using a fork pull the inside of the squash out, it should separate and look like spaghetti.
Mix meatballs, squash and pasta sauce together.

I hope you enjoy this home cooked, traditional pasta dish!
