Fresh spaghetti squash with SCD meat sauce

 

This past weekend I was lucky enough to have a good friend of mine come into town for a visit.  As many of you who are on a grain-free/SCD diet you know part of the trick of cooking for guests is making foods that will have your guests not even realizing they haven’t had any grains/gluten/etc and still getting the same enjoyment. This weekend I decided I would do a grain free healthy Spaghetti. Instead of pasta I slow cooked a spaghetti squash and turned into a stringy like pasta base. One large squash will give you enough mock-pasta for about 3-4 people depending on portion size.

For the sauce fresh lean ground beef, lots of vegetables and of course some great spices help. My one suggestion for this recipe is to make your own tomato sauce. This can be easily done and recipe’s found on most SCD food blogs. Alternately you can use a can of diced tomatoes still in their juice. The meat sauce will make lots so remember to freeze whatever you do not use for nights you feel lazy.

However you decide to do it this recipe is probably one of my favorites and lets me pretend I’m having pasta!

  1. We love spaghetti sqaush! One of my favorite recipes is boiling the sqaush whole ( you’ll appreciate this after you try to half one with a bigaz butcher knife), split and remove the seeds and fork out the sqaush meat. Heat up some other veggies of your choice. I like to caramelize some onions and stir fry some broccoli, carrots and asparagus if we have it fresh. I then add the other veggies and the sqaush meat back into the halves, add some marinara sauce and cheese of your choice on top, then into the oven to bake till the chefs is starting to brown. Yum!
