Hello! This is a throwback, because Tommy’s parents were in town this whole week, so I didn’t really cook (again)! As much as I am loving having friends and family in town, a routine and getting to cook healthy meals is pretty enticing!
Here is a very easily adaptable recipe you can really make “your own!”
A lot of people tell me they don’t want to try Primal/Paleo nutrition because they “love pasta too much.” Well, I have several alternatives, but one of my favorites is spaghetti squash!
One cool way to eat them if you are really hungry is to make it as a bowl!
Begin cooking your spaghetti squash the way that you normally would – cut it in half, scoop out the guts… Then put it a pan with an inch of water, with the inside “meat” of the squash down. Place the pan in a preheated oven (350 degrees is good) for about 45 minutes!
Then you can fill the bowl with whatever you want! In this image, I used fresh cheese from a grassfed cow, sauteed spinach, diced tomatoes, and italian sausage, but the only limits are your imagination! Put the “toppings” inside the “bowl” and bake a little bit (10 minutes or so)! Note: make sure you cook the meat separately beforehand, as the baking at the end won’t be enough to cook it all the way and you could get sick!
