Spaghetti Squash and Parmesan Meatballs

Spaghetti Squash and Parmesan Meatballs

Oh my goodness, Spaghetti Squash and Parmesan Meatballs is the perfect answer to post-holiday weight gain! Truly, this entree is fantastic. Instead of using regular pasta, this recipe uses spaghetti squash.  I made a homemade beef and parmesan-based meatball that was superb. But if you want to save time, you can also substitute a batch of pre-made chicken or turkey meatballs that will also work. Add a jar of spaghetti sauce and you’re good to go!

Spaghetti Squash and Parmesan Meatballs is much healthier and lower calorie than eating a regular pasta dish. It also tastes fantastic! While I chose to make the recipe gluten free by using gluten free bread crumbs, any kind of bread crumbs including Panko will work with this dish.

Spaghetti Squash and Parmesan Meatballs is a delicious entree that’s healthy and low calorie. It’s a great alternative to all the heavy fare of the holidays.

The paprika and cayenne pepper added just enough kick to make this interesting, but not so much that it overwhelmed the dish.

 

This tasty entree is wonderful garnished with a bit of fresh thyme.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the main recipe. I used only one jar of spaghetti sauce. The mason jar under the pepper is pink Himalayan sea salt.
