Table Talk Tuesday - Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment!!

Today we are going to be making Spaghetti squash with meat sauce!  This is a fun spaghetti alternative and it tastes great.  I haven' made this in years, but it is always a hit when I do.  The squash was on sale at the grocery store last week and it inspired me to make an old favourite.

I usually ending up serving this over egg noodles, so it never works out as a low carb meal for us.  The intention is always low carb and with my new diet plan, I have to give up the egg noodles.

If you are interested in seeing how I put this meal together, read on friend!

Ingredients




  • Spaghetti squash - each squash serves 2 people
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce of choice (I used hot and spicy)
  • 2-3 tomatos
  • 1 small onion
  • 125g ground beef
  • Garlic to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Italian seasoning to taste
These ingredients serve 2 people.

Directions

Spaghetti Squash


Cut your spaghetti squash in half

Clean out the seeds

Rub with Olive oil, salt and pepper

Place cut side down and bake at 425F for 45 minutes.


Turn over cook for an additional 10 minutes.




Remove from oven and flake with a fork to get the spaghetti strand


While the spaghetti squash is baking....

Meat Sauce


Heat pan, medium heat, with a splash of olive oil

Add onion and cook until onion is translucent



Add ground beef and cook to well done



Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and seasonings to taste




At the last minute I added some chilli powder for a little more heat.  I used 1 tbsp.



Let simmer until the squash is finished baking

Add the sauce directly onto the spaghetti squash and serve hot or...




Scrape the flesh out of the squash and add it to the meat sauce.  Serve like this or over noodles.



This was delicious and fun to eat.  My toddler didn't seem to notice that it was not spaghetti!

Let me know if you try this recipe!!

Take care and talk to you tomorrow!!
