Ground Beef Chili over Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Remember the good old days when we could just eat pasta then burn off the extra calories in a weekend?

I miss that.

These days, when I’m feeling like I need my pasta fix, I reach for spaghetti squash. I’ve gushed about spaghetti squash before but THIS recipe is too fantastic not to share!

Not only is this dish low in carbohydrates, it packs a great amount of protein in each serving!

Meal Prep

For the Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.

For the Low Carb Ground Beef Chili

In a medium, heavy bottomed pot heat the olive oil over medium. Add the garlic, onion and celery and stir often until tender. Add the ground beef and stir often until browned.

Add the remaining chili ingredients and reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
