1 tps smoked paprika

1 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. pepper

Add all the above except the coconut oil to a large bowl and mix with your hands. Then create your choice of meatball size. I choose to make a large meatball and came out with about 18 from one pound of meat.

Heat your pan on medium high then melt about 1-2 tbs of coconut oil; per batch and cook meatballs ; in batches until crunchy on all sides about 15 minutes.

    • Honestly depending on how hungry you are 2 people but it will also depend on the size of the spaghetti squash you get. I’d say if you got a bigger one then 4 people if cut into quarters.
