My Healthy Version of Spaghetti done with Spaghetti Squash bowl

I will have to say this is a household favorite and one of my personal ones.  I have always had a life affair with Spaghetti and this one is amazing considering we wont be adding a bunch of cheese to the top or any noodles at all!  I have been perfecting this one for years!
 
First of what you will need:

- 4-5 -1lb packages of extra lean ground beef
- 1 whole head of celery
- 1- 2 onions depending on size
- 3 jars of Classico (roasted red pepper) Its the only one without sugar!
- 2 cans of Huntz tomato paste with garlic. mmmm garlic
- 2 cans of mushrooms (if your spouse will let you)
- 2 to 5 giant hand fulls of spinach (optional)(get those greens)
- 1 red pepper (doesnt really which colour)
- 2 green pepper 
- 5 gloves of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of basil
- 1 tablespoon of oregano 
- 1 tsp of paprika 
- salt to taste
- 2 to 4 spaghetti squashes depending on people serving


So this is the easy part:

This can make at least 2 dinners for 4 people.

Instructions:

Step One:
Pre cook beef in pan on stove top until cooked.  I like to rinse all the fat off in a strainer in the sink.  Then add to pot

Step Two:
Then chop veggies add to pot.

Step Three:
Add all sauces including jars and cans of tomato paste.  Stir.

Step 4:  
Add all spices and stir.

Let cook together for 3- 4 hours on high on slow cooker or stove top for medium heat slightly covered until veggies are cooked.

Step 5:
Chop Spagetti Squash in half and remove all seeds.  Lightly oil with olive oil.  Sprinkle a little cinnamon, salt and pepper.  Cook in oven at 350 degrees (c) approximately 25 to 35 mins or until soft.
