Ultra Meat Sauce

Spaghetti without the spaghetti, as it were.


650 g minced beef
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic crushed
1 green pepper, diced
100 g tinned mushrooms, drained
500 ml low-carb spaghetti sauce


1. Brown and crumble the minced beef in a large, heavy frying pan. As the grease starts to collect in the pan, add the onion, garlic, green pepper and mushrooms. Continue cooking until pepper and onion are soft.

2. Pour off the excess grease. Stir in the spaghetti sauce and serve.

This is a good supper for the family, because, again, it's easy to add carbs for those who want them - you eat your very meaty meat sauce with a good sprinkling of Parmesan and you let the carb-eaters have theirs over spaghetti. Serve a big salad with it, and there's dinner.

Yield:- 5 servings, with (if you use the lowest-carbohydrate spaghetti sauce) 11 grams of carbohydrate and 4.6 grams of fibre, for a total of 6.4 grams of usable carbs and 25 grams of protein
