Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
(you need a spirilizer for this recipe)


1 pound hamburger (well drained)

1 medium Onion

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (not extra virgin)

2 cloves Garlic

1 Jar of your Favorite Marinara Sauce

1 medium size zucchini (about 1 1/2" in diameter), spirilize (small) to about spaghetti size 

1/4 cup fresh basil (I freeze it), chopped

teaspoon dried oregano

Grated Romano Cheese

salt and pepper to taste


Chop onion and brown onion in large skillet.  Chop garlic and add to onion and brown a couple of minutes more.  Add hamburger to skillet and brown and drain very well.

Add seasonings, marinara sauce and zucchini.  Heat while submerging spirilized zucchini as best you can in the sauce.  Continue to cook for about 10-12 minutes.  Serve topped with grated Romano cheese.

Tip: Extra Virgin Olive Oil burns at a lower temperature. Only use "Virgin" for salads and things that aren't heated. Use regular 100% olive oil for cooking.

what about sugar in marinara sauce? wouldn't it hurt on the diet portion?

I love the marinara sauce too. I also add very little sugar to give it little sweetness and not make it too sour.
