It’s not all that often that I post recipes containing dairy on here anymore, but this Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash is gluten-free, full of cheese and it’s delicious. I used to consume more cheese when I was following the SCD diet which I know a lot of my readers still are, so this one… Read more »


I love when these guys come back in season. It’s so nice to have a pasta alternative as a grain-free foodie. It has a pretty mild taste so it goes great underneath a pungent tomato sauce, but can also hold its own with just a little olive oil or butter and seasonings. Here’s a little… Read more »


Sometimes cooking for children is less about trying new recipes and more about a fresh presentation of the same old same old. This is just your typical grain-free spaghetti and meatballs, but it is served in a “boat” for fun. I’m fortunate that...

  Just like many kids, my son is a picky eater! So when he asks for gluten free spaghetti and meatballs, I jump at the chance to make it for him and watch him devour it. Who wouldn’t want to feed their family this healthy spaghetti and meatballs? When zucchini is in season, we love… Read more »


I use the same spaghetti with meat sauce recipe for both my zucchini lasagna and spaghetti squash. It takes a few hours to boil down the tomato juice to get an appropriate consistency, but it is very worth it! You can double the recipe and freeze half of the sauce for later use.
