P2 Spaghetti and Meatballs (rogue)


I made zucchini spaghetti again! This time I also made a batch of meatballs to go with, and made the sauce saucier. I definitely prefer the spaghetti with tomato sauce, and the meatballs were nice because I made sure I got all of my protein in, whereas with the browned broken-up meat I didn't eat all of it.

This recipe is considered "rogue" because it includes zucchini. I haven't had any issue eating zucchini on Phase 2 but use your best judgment for yourself.

Here is my spirooli slicer again. Super fun and easy to make "noodles" out of almost any fruit or veggie.

Spaghetti Sauce

1 Tbsp onion, minced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 can diced tomatoes, or 1 fresh tomato, chopped
8 oz tomato sauce
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

Mix and simmer while you make your meatballs.

Meatballs

3.5 oz ground beef
1 Tbsp bread crumbs
1 tsp milk
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp garlic salt
pinch pepper

Preheat oven to 425. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Form into small balls (I get 8-10 in a batch.) Place on baking sheet and cook 7-9 minutes or until done. Drain on paper towels and add to sauce.

You can add the noodles to the sauce pot to heat through, or if you prefer your zucchini to be crunchier, pour the hot sauce over the zucchini noodles.

I agree, I'm about to begin stage 3 of the HCG diet and I'm excited to buy this slicer too and have spaghetti as well! Thanks for the awesome idea! :)

You're welcome! It's a very handy tool and helps get some veggies into my kids as well. We make apple spaghetti too with peanut butter sauce for a fun snack.

Bread Crumbs? I thought any carbs were a big no, no?

Hi! With the original HCG diet you are allowed a small bread/cracker allowance per day, so you can crush those breadsticks or melba toasts into crumbs for the meatballs if you like. You can also just leave them out if you prefer, but they are technically allowed even on the very strict Simeons protocol.
