Spaghetti Squash with Ground Beef and Spinach

Its light & refreshing with a creamy finish. I'm clearly a meat eater but this can be made vegan too! Spaghetti squash gives you the satisfaction that pasta does & is a great way to make a nice weekday dinner! 


  • 1 Spaghetti Squash cut in half 
  • 1 lb Triple C Ground Beef 
  • 1 can Garbanzo beans ( drained and rinsed) 
  • 3 garlic cloves, whole 
  • 1 shallot, minced 
  • Few slices of sun dried tomatoes, diced 
  • 2 tbs Scallion olive oil ( Cardenas - its amazing) regular olive oil will work too! 
  • 2c. spinach 
  • Fresh thyme ( or rosemary)
  • Bean sprouts 
  • Piave or Parmesan, shredded 
  • Red pepper flakes 
  • 1 Lemon, juiced 
  • Half a jalapeno, diced 
  • Salt & Pepper 


  • Pre-heat oven 400°
  • Cut Spaghetti squash in half, scrape out the seeds & drizzle olive oil on it. 
  • Place skin side up on a baking sheet and pop in the oven for about 30 minutes 
  • Meanwhile, add a little olive oil in your cast iron & saute shallots, garlic & crushed red peppers 
  • Once they are soft add thyme and ground beef. 
  • Brown the ground beef and then add chick peas & stir
  • Mix in jalapeno and sun dried tomatoes 
  • Add spinach and lime juice & stir until spinach is wilted.
  • Scrape the spaghetti squat with a fork and season with salt & pepper
  • On a large plate or bowl serve ground beef mixture over the spaghetti squash & top with shredded piave (or parmesan) and bean sprouts 

Light and soft, this kind of meal always makes me smile & feel so good! Talk about a guilt free dinner, this is it! Enjoy, its different and hearty! 


Made with love,
