Healthy Gluten-Free Spaghetti and Meatballs

Are you craving some good old-fashioned spaghetti and meatballs, but are trying to stay away from gluten or keeping your carbs down? 

We love taking our favorite classic foods and making them healthy.  This is a super simple switch that we think will satisfy your craving!

Serves: 4


  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce (either bought or homemade, just watch the sugar content)
  • Your favorite meatballs (you can make or buy gluten-free meatballs from your favorite store, we used our favorite frozen turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's... they aren't gluten-free but switch it up to what works for you!)

First you have to prepare and cook the spaghetti squash.  VERY CAREFULLY cut the squash in half, lengthwise.  We use a huge, serrated knife.  Once you have the squash cut in half, it will look like a pumpkin.  Scoop out the seeds and place both halves, face up, in a glass baking dish with about a 1/2 inch of water in the  bottom of the dish.  Bake at 400 degrees for about an hour.  Once the squash is cooked, remove from the oven and carefully use a fork to scrape the squash away from it's skin.  It will look a little like spaghetti - show the kids, they'll think it's awesome!

In the meantime, cook/heat your sauce and meatballs.  Since we use the frozen ones, we just heat them in a big pot on the stove with the sauce until everything is heated through.

Put the squash on your plate, top with sauce and meatballs, put a gorgeous colorful salad next to it, and enjoy!!!
