I do a monthly guest post for Food Renegade- such an honor! This month, I decided to share a low FODMAP version of my spaghetti squash & meatballs recipe! It’s a great option for those who are looking for ways to eat well on a FODMAP-friendly diet 🙂
Spaghetti squash with meatballs has been one of my favorite go-to meals for years… it’s simple, clean, and scrumptious. (See my go-to recipe this is based off of HERE– it’s the inspiration for this one!)
Use any meat you like, though bison is a favorite in my kitchen! Any marinara-like sauce will work well for this, however most store-bought sauces have onions and garlic, so I’ve included a homemade tomato sauce below that is made with ingredients suitable for a low FODMAP diet.
To make up for the lack of garlic and onions in the sauce, an assortment of fresh herbs and vegetables are added in… bok choy stems add the crunch of onions, while peppers, eggplant, and herbs add flavor and depth. Of course if you have no need to follow a FODMAP-friendly diet, add all the onions and garlic you want! 😉
This recipe can easily be made ahead… make the meatballs and sauce, then when you’re ready to eat, just bake the squash and then heat it all up together!
The basic steps for the recipe are pretty simple… even with the homemade sauce included.
