Having your old-school favorite, spaghetti and meatballs, may be quite challenging for Paleo enthusiasts. Worry no more with this Paleo Spaghetti & Meatballs recipe.
Paleo Spaghetti & Meatballs
For the squash and sauce: Preheat the oven to 392 degrees F and place a rack in the oven.
Rub 1/2 tablespoon of the oil on each cut-side of the squash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place the squash cut-side up on a baking sheet and roast until fork tender, about 1 hour.
Cool the squash for at least 10 minutes.
Scrape the tines of a fork lengthwise along the flesh of the squash to pull out the long, thin strands.
While the squash cooks, make the sauce.

Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, and chili.
Cover the pot, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for at least 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

For the meatballs: Combine the ground beef, chopped onions, salt, pepper, garlic and egg in a large bowl.
Form about the meatballs.
Place the meatballs in the sauce and simmer until firm to the touch and cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Top with chopped scallions.
Tuna is always an easy and healthy choice for a Paleo-on-the-go snack or meal. The problem with tuna is the fact that I love mayo with it! I try to have Paleo Mayo ready for the week, but sometimes the Paleo mayo making does not happen. This “Tuna Salad” is what I try instead. I love the creamy avocado with the tuna.
Give it a whirl and let me know how you like it!
