Recovery Day & Spagetti Squash Stroganoff

squash stoganoff
…. pretty damn good!

This dinner was surprisingly awesome. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but it was totally legitimately ‘good’! Like if Beef Stroganoff and Swedish Meatballs had a paleo style baby 🙂 

Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash (cooked and pulled apart)
  • 1# of ground beef
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped shiitaki mushrooms
  • 1 shallot sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 cup of milk (replace with coconut milk if you don’t dairy, It will be sweeter, but still good)
  • 1/4 cup cream (omit, if you don’t do dairy, perhaps try coconut cream)
  • Grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Method
Cook the ground beef & veggies until cooked. Add the dairy and parsley and simmer on low until it thickens a bit. Add the squash in and let it soak in for a few minutes. Serve hot.
