Paleo Spaghetti and Meatballs



Paleo Spaghetti and Meatballs


Spaghetti squash is one of the best things that I have ever discovered! I use it to replace so many carbs.. it is healthy, easy and doesn't have a strong taste- so my kids and husband will eat it! Win for a mom that has to feed 5 boys/men!! 

Ingredients:

1 large spaghetti squash, roasted and shredded (click HERE for my step by step instructions on how to do this)

1 tsp olive or avocado oil

1 small onion, finely diced

1 pound lean ground turkey (or beef or venison or whatever!)

1/4 cup almond flour

1/8 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 large egg

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (*optional)

1/2 tsp oregano

sea salt and pepper to taste

Tomato Sauce, heated (If using store bought, make sure to check the labels! Many brands contain sugar and other nasty things! 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. 
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute, stirring constantly. 
In a bowl, combine ground meat, almond flour, milk, onion mixture, egg, parsley, cheese if using, oregano, and salt and pepper. 
Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls, about 1 inch around. 
Bake for about 15 minutes, until cooked cooked through. 

Serve over spaghetti squash and tomato sauce. Enjoy!!
