Meat and "Cheese" Spaghetti

Updated: Mar 14, 2022

Gluten-free, dairy-free, low-FODMAP too!

The family was hungry for spaghetti this weekend, so I made some that was Lauren-approved. The kids love this dish so much, that they request it almost every week.

The key to its rich flavor is the combination of several spices, organic hamburger (if possible), Rao's sensitive marinara sauce, and a topping of nutritional yeast / vegan parmesan cheese. We love the marinara sauce because it is so flavorful yet free of onion and garlic, which keeps the dish FODMAP-friendly.

Despite the substitutions, this dish is delicious! I often take it to dinner parties, and it is always a huge favorite. Family and friends love it, and those with dietary restrictions / preferences can enjoy it as well!
