So when was the last time I actually shared a recipe with yinz? I can’t remember. Today, that problem is going to be SOLVED!
I have been experimenting with a lot more in the kitchen lately as I have time on my hands now each week to dedicate to planning, organizing, and cooking up a storm! Today, I wanted to share with you all a primal pasta recipe I cam up with using two of my favorite ingredients: Beyond Organic Ground Beef and, Beyond Organic Raw Cheese, and spaghetti squash! I am keeping this pretty short and simple today, but FEAR NOT! You’re going to love what you’ll end up with here. Take a look at my Primal Fettuccine Alfredo!
Primal Fettuccine Alfredo
1/2 cup coconut milk
1-2 cups spaghetti squash (used from an entire whole squash)
1/4 cup shredded Beyond Organic Raw Cheddar
1lb Beyond Organic Ground Beef
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/2 tsp of dried parsley
Directions: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake squash for an hour. While the squash is baking, prepare your meatballs. In a mixing bowl, combine the beef, garlic, sea salt, parsley, and black pepper until the spices are all well mixed into the meat. Form the into about 8 to 12 little meatballs and place them on an oven safe dish. If you need to, place them on a baking dish and cover them up to be refrigerated until the squash is done. Once the squash is done, swap the squash out for the meat balls. Bake the meatballs for roughly 25 minutes. While the meatballs are baking, cut the spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Then, keep on scooping out the “meat” of the squash until you end up with a mountain of spaghetti squash to work with. Reserve 1-2 cups for your own personal dish and freeze the rest for later use.
Once the meatballs are done, get ready for the final step! You are going to simmer the squash in the coconut milk for about 5 minutes on a medium heat. Feel free to add some extra parsley and garlic. Want to know how to plate it all up? Check out my YouTube video below! And no, I haven’t forgotten about the CHEESE!
There you have it! A Beyond Organic primal pasta masterpiece! That’s all I have for yinz today! Remember to eat smart, train hard, and enjoy your life!
