  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  5. Heat a large soup pot on medium heat.
  6. Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the pot, followed by the garlic and onion.
  7. Add the ground meat and stir constantly, breaking up the chunks of meat and making sure the garlic and onion do not burn.
  8. Once the meat is browned and the onion and garlic are translucent, add the balsamic and continue to stir.

  10. Add the basil and oregano, and stir to combine.
  11. Turn heat down to low, cover and simmer until the spaghetti squash is finished.
  12. Once the squash is cooled a bit, scoop out the inside with a fork, to plate the dish.

    I found the salt measurement to be way too high. I originally cut the 2 tsp to 1 tsp but it was still very salty. Next time, I will use 1/2 tsp.

    I have 3 of their books this is 1 the recipes I love most. Had to get cherry balsamic on line, love the hint of cherry flavor in the sauce, didn’t know what to expect of the balsamac thought it would be more like vinagar not the case at all, who would have thought. You may get the same idea I think if you added a red wine. But the cherry works well.

    Sometimes we use tart cherry juice in our spaghetti sauce… it’s easier to find in stores than cherry balsamic vinegar.
