Recipe: Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 Jar of your favorite Spaghetti sauce
  • 1 ½ Lbs of Lean Ground Beef (92/8 or so)
  • Olive Oil
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Garlic
  • ¼ tsp of Oregano

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and place squash flat on the sheet. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until you can insert a knife through the squash easily.
  4. Place ground beef into a bowl and mix with seasonings. Roll into small balls all the same size.
  5. Drizzle olive oil in a saute pan and place meatballs in pan. Saute until all sides are golden brown.
  6. Pour  jar of spaghetti sauce into saute pan and cook on low heat so the sauce simmers and cooks with the meatballs. Cook for approximately 20 minutes.
  7. Using oven mitts, scrap out the seeds of the squash and throw away. Use a fork to scrap out all the flesh of the squash into a bowl. (Should look like noodles 🙂
  8. In a bowl place desired amount of squash and top with meatballs and sauce.

Tips

This is one of my favorite “classic” meals. I love to change this up using ground turkey or any other flavors i can think of. Have fun with it and use spices to create different flavors.
