Paleo Spaghetti

Spaghetti has always been one of my most favorite meals so I was truly crushed when my food allergies took it away from me. However, once I learned about and made my first spaghetti squash I honestly feel like I don’t miss out anymore. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t gladly go back to normal spaghetti… but I really do love this new option. And it’s just as quick and easy to make.

Start by cutting off the top and bottom of the squash. Then slice it length-wise and scoop out all the seeds. This part is Jesse’s job because they are really hard to cut through.

The first time I cooked mine in the oven, then someone told me that the microwave works much better. I like to add a little water to the bottom of the dish so that it steams well and microwave for 10-12 minutes depending on the size of the squash.

When it’s finished, it should shred easily with a fork. Make sure to get all the way down to the skin, it makes a whole lot more food than I realized at first… plus it is really filling.

Then it’s ready to be topped with your favorite spaghetti sauce. I like to use Muir Glen tomato products and mix with ground beef to make it more filling. I love their sauce because it’s just tomatoes and spices… nothing I’m allergic to!

Of course, you have to add parmesan cheese on top, too.
