Or is it?

This totally reminds me of this past SNL’s skit of “It’s Almost Pizza”.  Eating Paleo and missing some of the comfort foods in your life.   Fear not, Almost Spaghetti with Meat Sauce is here!  I kid.

You will need:

  • 1lb of grass fed beef or grass fed bison
  • 1 jar organic spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1-2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

Do this part first because it will take the longest.  Split and remove seed from your spaghetti squash.  Place face down on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

While the above is cooking, heat pan and coat with coconut oil. Add your onions and garlic and saute.  Over medium/high heat, add in and brown up your beef, bison or turkey until cooked thoroughly.  Drain if needed and return to pan.  Turn heat down, add tomatoes and sauce and simmer for at least 10-15 minutes.

When spaghetti squash is done, it will be fork tender, remove and let cool down.  Once you can handle it, take a fork and shred the insides out into a bowl.  Will be stringy like spaghetti.


Next, add your squash into your meat sauce mixture.  Combine and serve.
