For the Spaghetti Squash:

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash

  • Olive oil for brushing

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Cuban-Style Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1/2 lb ground pork

  • 1/4 cup almond flour

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Brush the inside with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet and roast for about 40 minutes, or until the flesh is tender and easily shredded with a fork.

  2. While the squash is roasting, prepare the meatballs. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, almond flour, egg, garlic, onion, cilantro, cumin, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.

  3. Form the meat mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs and arrange them on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are browned and cooked through.

  5. When the spaghetti squash is ready, use a fork to scrape the inside, creating spaghetti-like strands.

  6. Serve the meatballs over the spaghetti squash. Garnish with additional fresh cilantro, if desired.
