One of my favorite meals is spaghetti with moose spaghetti sauce, it's one of those kind of dishes that is always a crowd pleaser.
Recently however; my wife and I decided we needed to be healthier and our first step towards that joint goal was to eat better and healthier.
Now don't worry there is still going to be moose meat eaten in our house!
We have embarked on the Paleo Lifestyle… in short, the Paleo way of living is going back to the paleolithic way of living. Basically returning to the way the cavemen ate. The paleolithic era ended about 10,000 years ago and the people from those days were hunters and gathers.
Are you starting to see the connection here! They didn't eat processed food, the were nomadic and so didn't have long periods of time to soak or cook things.
[T]he "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet. Centered on commonly available modern foods, the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, [wild game,] grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, fungi, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, potatoes, refined salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.
So this recipe will fit a Paleo Lifestyle but not to worry it really isn't much different than the way we used to do… I'll show you.
Moose mince is still a little too pink... cook a few minutes longer.

Spaghetti Squash shredded into Noodles
In a large saucepan heat your oil on a medium heat. Once hot sauté the onions until just turning translucent then add the garlic. Be careful to not cook the garlic too long as it burn quite quickly.
Add the moose mince a cook until the pink is just gone. Add the salt, pepper and mushrooms at this point and simmer a few minutes longer before adding the bell peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato sauce.
Bring to boil and simmer for about 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add spices during this time and serve with your spaghetti or other pasta.
For those on the Paleo diet… no pasta for you!
We cooked up a spaghetti squash and served our moose spaghetti sauce on that. The great thing about having squash noodles instead of pasta, is the lack of carbohydrates. Pasta and it's starch is just filler, the veggie of the squash is not as filling, better for you and just as satiating.
We sincerely hope you enjoy this moose spaghetti recipe!
