Spaghetti with Meat Sauce! Ahhh! How I missed it!

After going Paleo & then AIP, pasta was something that I really missed.  I loved pasta.  We ate it every week. Sometimes several times a week… with bread! Yeah, I know that’s why I had to go AIP Paleo. So, after a few months, I just had to have Spaghetti with Meat Sauce!

I can’t believe I had never had spaghetti squash. This was life-changing.

I decided to make an AIP Paleo version of my old Spaghetti with Meat Sauce minus the tomatoes.  Wow! It was amazing! I didn’t even miss the tomatoes. Well, maybe a little!

First cook & prep your squash. I had 2 small ones but you can cook 1 med. – large one. If you haven’t cooked one before, here is my recipe on How to Cook Spaghetti Squash & if you have an Instant Pot this recipe is by far the easiest & fastest way to cook Spaghetti Squash.

While the squash is cooking, brown your Organic Grass-Fed ground beef in EVOO. Add onions, garlic, sea salt, & Italian seasoning, saute. You can use fresh herbs if you have them. Fresh herbs are always better. For fresh herbs, I like to add them after everything has cooked, when the Meat Sauce is simmering.

Then add the mushrooms & olives. I like to use fresh mushrooms, but you can also use canned ones like these. After it has cooked for about 5 min. you can add the coconut milk for AIP or tomatoes if Paleo. Let simmer for about 15-20 min. I like to add a bag of organic baby spinach, right before serving to add extra nutrients.  Just cook long enough for it to wilt. You could always add frozen too. I do that in a pinch when I don’t have fresh spinach.

Sprinkle with a generous portion of Nutritional Yeast for a more cheesy flavor!

Coconut milk makes the sauce more creamy like Alfredo (almost).  If you haven’t tried it, you should. It’s delish!

Ingredients:

 

*Optional – For AIP add 1-2 cans of full-fat coconut milk (for creamier more Alfredo-like sauce) I like to add 2 cans. (I add 1/4 c. nutritional yeast & garlic powder)

*Optional – For Paleo add 1 jar of organic diced tomatoes or your favorite marinara sauce.

Directions:

*Tip– Make sure you add enough sea salt & garlic powder to the spaghetti squash to take away the sweetness of the squash.

    This is soooo yummy. I also add some canned artichokes as well. The creamy sauce is to die for and I so appreciate having a delicious AIP recipe like this in my meal plan.
