My wife is far from primal, but she's really doing her best to prepare primal dishes for our family at dinner. Today, she asked me if I'd be ok with spaghetti (made with spaghetti squash) & meat sauce. I semi-reluctantly said ok. First off, I have to admit, it wasn't 100% primal because she did use canned, chunky style sauce, which has a little sugar & a little soybean oil. However, aside from that, it was pretty spot on. She added ground turkey (so it would be lower-fat for her) instead of beef, but I'm ok with that. She also added some fresh chopped zucchini and mushrooms. Let me just say, it was outstanding! My 4 year old and 20 month old both loved it. The slightly crunchy texture of the squash was actually a good change from plain old pasta! She was ecstatic when I said I could easily eat this once a week. It will definitely be added to the menu going forward!!!
