This Vegetarian Meatballs and Spaghetti Squash with Fresh Mozzarella are filling, hearty, and packed with veggies.
As a vegetarian, it can be hard to find dishes that are lower in carbohydrates since most dishes rely on grains and legumes to make sure they are hearty and filling. But with the right combination of veggies and vegetarian protein, you can make a lower carbohydrate vegetarian meal that tastes amazing and keeps you full. This dish does just that. The meatballs are made with vegetarian ground meat combined with spices, Parmesan cheese, and an egg. Then the meatballs are cooked in a quick homemade tomato sauce and everything is served in a roasted spaghetti squash. Then since everything is better with cheese, some fresh mozzarella is melted on top. Yum.
