Spaghetti squash with meat sauce

Spaghetti squash is in itself a low-calorie food and its fiber content makes it a very full-filling meal as a substitute for real spaghetti, which is a high-calorie food. It can be a great replacement for weight-control and even weight-loss. In it self it does not have a lot of taste, but it can easily be spiced up with a delicious meat sauce! 

You’ll need:

  • 450 g minced beef (max. 7%)
  • 1 leek
  • ¼ pointed white cabbage
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 150 ml water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • A dash of oregano
  • 2 squash
  • 40 g grated parmesan
  • (Optional) a little flat-leaf parsley
  • Equipment: spiralizer

How to prepare:

Finely chop the leek, onion and cabbage. Heat the oil in a pot. Brown the ground beef and add the vegetables. Add the chopped tomatoes and 200 ml water. Add salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano to taste. Let the meat sauce simmer for at least 15 min. Put the squash through the spiralizer and place in a bowl. Season with salt and add boiling water to the bowl. Let sit for about 5 min. (If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can peel long pieces off the squash using a potato peeler) Top with grated parmesan, and optionally a little parsley.
