Super easy "spaghetti" with meat sauce

This dish is one of my favorite go-to week night dishes when I need something hearty but have little time to cook. It comes together super quick but doesn't feel like you're eating an easy, boring recipe. I used canned tomato sauce that has a bit of sugar, so if you're trying to avoid sugar, you can use a homemade recipe if you have some in your freezer or have the time.

Zoodles are just the best, and provide a great crunch in this dish. I added in mushrooms and spinach, but get creative and add your favorite veggies! I love how much green is in this dish, but it doesn't taste like you're eating so many greens.

Ingredients:

2 large zucchinis, spiralized

1/2 medium yellow onion, diced

3 cups spinach, packed

1 lb mushrooms

1 lb grass fed ground beef

1 cup tomato sauce of choice

Directions:

1. Heat 1 tsp coconut oil in a large saute pan

2. Add onion and cook for 1 minute

3. Add mushrooms and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until soft

4. Add in spinach and cook until wilted

5. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink

6. Add tomato sauce and mix well. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through

7. Add zoodles and toss. I like to just incorporate the zoodles as I like the crunch they provide. If you cook for too long, they won't have the texture of noodles.

8. Enjoy!

*This would be great topped with some fresh chopped basil!
