This is a simple and delicious low carb version of your favorite spaghetti and meatballs recipe! 
When I chose to make the transition to a more low carb way of eating, I knew the only way I was going to get my family on board was if I kept our meals as “normal” as possible. After all, this isn’t the first “diet” I have put them through over the years, but after having great success with it over the last few months I knew this was going to be my new normal, and I wanted my family to enjoy the same health benefits that I was. One of my favorite dishes since I was a little girl has been spaghetti and meatballs, so I was determined to find a low carb alternative.

For The Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed pork rinds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder

For The Sauce:
  • 1 pkg Shirataki Noodles
  • 1 28oz can peeled whole tomatoes
  • 1 tsp onion
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

To Prepare the Meatballs:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, crushed pork rinds, egg, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  3. Form into 1″ balls and place on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper (or mini muffin tray).
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or the internal temperature reaches 165F on a meat thermometer.

For The Spaghetti and Sauce
  1. Start by adding all of the sauce ingredients to a blender and pulsing until it is the consistency you prefer.
  2. Pour the sauce into a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  3. While the sauce is simmering, prepare the noodles according to package instructions. 
  4. Assemble the noodles, sauce, and meatballs in serving bowls. Serve hot.
