This crock pot meat sauce and spaghetti squash cooked all in ONE pot will blow your mind. It might just become your new favorite meal. I was in a rush yesterday and wanted to make some crock pot meat sauce to serve over spaghetti squash for dinner. After putting together the meat sauce, I was short on time so I just sliced the spaghetti squash in half, took the seeds out and put it in the slow cooker with the meat sauce. It came out perfectly cooked and was an awesome and easy one pot meal! I could eat this almost every day.
This recipe made a little over 3 cups of meat sauce. Each half cup serving of the meat sauce is approximately 2.25 g. of net carbs. A whole cup of spaghetti squash is approx. 8 g. of net carbs and 42 calories. This will cure your craving for pasta. The spaghetti squash is so high in fiber it kept me full and feeling great for hours and hours!
Tips: ** Fennel Powder (in my opinion) is a key ingredient in making a red sauce smell and taste great. Fennel Powder is not widely available, but fennel seed is. I make my own powder by buying fennel seed and grinding it for a few minutes in my Magic Bullet Blender and then pouring it (via folded over paper towel) back into its original container.
