Spaghetti Squash with Ground Bison and Tomato Sauce

Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorite low carb meals and I prefer adding a protein like bison because it's very low in fat content.

Feel free to substitute the protein for your favorite protein source.






  • Small to Medium sized Spaghetti Squash (or whatever squash you prefer)
  • 1/2 lb Ground Bison
  • 1 Small Shallot chopped 
  • 1/4 Yellow onion chopped 
  • 1/2 Small Green Zucchini diced
  • 1/2 Small Yellow Squash diced
  • 1/2 Small Can of Diced Tomatoes No Salt Added
  • 1/2 Green Bell Pepper diced
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 1/2 c Diced Bella Mushrooms (preferably fresh)
  • 1 Can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Stem of Fresh Basil chopped (Save for later)
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 c of Olive Oil (or whatever oil you prefer)



  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cut Spaghetti Squash in half lengthwise. Clean out the seeds and lightly baste the spaghetti squash before placing face down in Medium-sized pan. Bake for up to 45 Minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prep veggies and place all veggies (except for onions, shallots, bay leaves and basil) in a mixing bowl and set aside
  3. In a large skillet add the 1/3 c Olive Oil, Shallots, and Onions and cook until brown over medium high heat.
  4. Once Shallots and Onions are brown add the Ground Bison (season as desired)
  5. After meat is fully cooked add in the prepped veggies and fold into the meat. Continue to season as necessary. 
  6. Pour in the diced tomatoes and fold in. Place bay leaves in the skillet.
  7. Let cook down before adding the tomato sauce (You can substitute the tomato sauce for your favorite spaghetti or alfredo sauce as well).
  8. Add the tomato sauce and the chopped basil. Let simmer for about 10 minutes to allow the vegetables to cook through.
  9. Allow Spaghetti Squash to cool before handling.
  10. Once it has cooled, take a fork and from the top to the bottom drag the fork down creating your "spaghetti". 
  11. Plate and top with your sauce. Enjoy.
