Paleo Spaghetti Sauce (easy)

Paleo Spaghetti Sauce

This unique Paleo Spaghetti Sauce was spearheaded by my hubby who wanted to include one of his favorite ingredients:  truffle oil. At first I was skeptical, but then I tasted the very subtle flavor change it imparted on the sauce. I don’t think I could have guessed what the “secret ingredient” was, but this simple “little something” improved it above and beyond the usual meat sauce.


Of course, the Paleo Spaghetti Sauce tastes fantastic with or without the truffle oil, so don’t hesitate to try the basic sauce for the speed and easy prep it calls for.


I first time I tasted the Paleo Spaghetti Sauce was after it had been refrigerated overnight. The taste had only improved as the spices and meat had a longer time to meld together. This makes it ideal for those times you want to cook in advance, for potlucks, family gathering, parties, etc.


I serve the Paleo Spaghetti Sauce over a bed of fresh greens, I love the taste of wilted greens under the hot sauce. It is also delicious served over spiralized zucchini noodles, baked potatoes, mashed baked acorn squash, spaghetti squash, or Manischewitz grain-free pasta.

I literally have no room in our tiny kitchen for any more cooking paraphernalia. Therefore, I served the Paleo Spaghetti Sauce pictured over zucchini noodles I made using a potato peeler.
