Food For Friday – Paleo Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Meatballs

Healthy and simple is the name of the game. I follow a great healthy eating blog on Facebook, Paleo Pot . He posts tons of easy Paleo crock pot recipes. I absolutely fell in love with this one a few months ago, Stupid Easy Paleo Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs. Mind you I’d never had spaghetti squash before, had been wanting to try it forever, but hadn’t until this recipe, and I still ask myself, WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?! I love, love it! Trying to stay away from white carbs I’ve tried various types of pasta, whole grain, multi grain, whole wheat, brown rice, and this vegetable has them all beat!

I’ll stop swooning over spaghetti squash and get back to the recipe now. It’s super easy, all you need isย  a medium squash, 1 lb of Italian sausage/ground sausage (I removed the casing from mine), a can of pasta sauce (lazy way) or a can of tomato sauce and herbs/seasoning (I’ve done both and loved it with the tomato sauce and my fresh herbs from the garden), garlic, and olive oil.

Doesn’t get more simple than this. Cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, dump the ingredients in the croc pot, put the squash in, form and layer the meatballs around the squash, and let it cook for 3 – 5 hours.

BAM! When it’s done you simply use a fork to scrape the squash strings out. Fast, easy to prepare, and healthy to boot! Needless to say this is on regular rotation around these here parts. ๐Ÿ˜‰
