When I started cutting back on starchy carbs, I began finding substitutes for pasta. I found that there are several vegetables that make a good substitute. I use steamed broccoli a lot because it’s so easy to make but I love spaghetti squash as well. It does take longer to cook but it’s more like pasta.
Subbing out veggies for pasta is a great way to make dinner healthier and this Spaghetti Squash with Meat Ragu is a great example.
You can find the recipe here:
I added a couple of cloves of minced garlic in while cooking the veggies. I also added an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce as well as some Italian seasoning.
This is a Paleo and real food dinner as well as a THM(S) meal.
