Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce
Here's a family favorite recipe that is low in calories and delicious. This is a great substitute for the high calorie spaghetti meal and works for the paleo diet, Whole30, or a gluten free diet.
This recipe is a variation on a recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks, The Everyday Paleo. You have to get this cookbook! Here's the link to it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/098256581X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=098256581X&linkCode=as2&tag=maxiimpakara-20&linkId=NYHZ5ZV4AZASLSSF
