GAPs, Paleo Meatballs and Courgette Pasta

 
 
Before starting on GAPs my son Thomas loved pasta and one of his favourites as pasta and meatballs.  I invested in a spiraliser and now we make "spaghetti" from courgette, carrots and squash and also sometimes use chopped cabbage as a neutral substitute.  He likes to help me make this and it definitely makes him eat more!
Meatballs
500g of organic grassfed minced beef
1 clove garlic crushed or 1 shallot finely chopped (optional)
salt & pepper
herbs & spices to taste (we used a little paprika and basil)
Mix the beef with all the seasoning and form into little balls by hand.  Fry them gently in a large frying pan until they start to brown. 
Sauce
1 tin of tomatos
1 large sprig of fresh basil
1/2 glass dry white wine (optional if on full GAPs)
1 tbsp. tomato puree
1 clove garlic crushed
Salt & pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients to the pan of meatballs.  Bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer for at least 10 minutes. 
Pasta
1 large courgette per person
Use your spiraliser or julienne cutter (even a potato peeler works) to create ribbons of courgette.  Boil some water in a pan and add the courgette only for a few minutes until it softens.  Strain and add a little butter or olive oil. 
Serve by mixing the meatball sauce and pasta and top with a little parmesan if tolerated.
