Mom's Spaghetti & Meat Sauce (Paleofied)

Here is a quick recipe post that is easy and will last all week for this Paleo Challenge!  I bring to you Mom's Spaghetti & Meat Sauce! Obviously it's called Mom's because she has always used this recipe and its the best sauce ever!
* This picture shows meatballs, but you can easily make them as well. Look below for the modification.*

Mom's Spaghetti & Meat Sauce!

1 lb. ground grass-fed beef or bison
3 small cans organic tomato sauce
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. Italian seasonings
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
optional: red pepper flakes

1 spaghetti squash (any size!)
coconut oil
salt & pepper
optional: garlic powder

Sauce:  Preheat oven for 415 degrees. In a medium sized pot place the ground beef/bison and onion on medium heat. Cook until the beef is browned, then drain! Add the tomato sauce & seasonings, bring to a boil. After the sauce boils turn the heat to low and cover. Stir periodically and let it simmer for 1 hour. *For meatballs: place ground beef in a bowl and combine with a 1/4 of the onion and salt/pepper. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then add to sauce.*

Spaghetti: Meanwhile, poke holes in the squash and place in a microwavable glass bowl with a bit of water.  Place in the microwave and heat for about 5-8 minutes until it gets slightly soft. Remove and cut into two halves (this part is tricky so be careful, we want all our digits!), remove seeds. Place on a foiled baking sheet and place about a tablespoon of coconut oil on the halves and season with salt and pepper. Flip over so the squash is skin side up and bake for about 45 minutes.  Let cool and with a fork remove the delicious spaghetti! Top with meat sauce and ENJOY!
