Grain Free One Pan Spaghetti Recipe (Over Cabbage)

One-pan grain free gluten free spaghetti recipi

This isn’t one of the most visually appealing recipes to emerge from my kitchen, but one of the simplest! It’s a quick and easy take on spaghetti without the grains. It even got an un-prompted  “This is actually pretty good,” from my Italian husband!

My favorite part… it only takes one (oven-safe) pan to make from start to finish and the kids all ate it!

Grain Free Spaghetti Recipe

This recipe uses shredded cabbage in place of spaghetti noodles for a nutrient rich substitution that is grain-free and gluten-free. Sounds strange but tastes great!

  • Preheat the oven to broil.
  • In a large oven safe skillet, brown the meat.
  • While meat is browning, thinly slice the onions. 
  • When the meat is almost finished cooking, add the onions and cook until the meat is done.
  • Thinly slice the cabbage into "noodle" thin pieces as you would for sauerkraut.
  • Add the cabbage to the skillet and saute until softened. You may have to do this in several batches, returning it all to the pan when it is cooked down.
  • Stir the spices and spaghetti sauce.
  • If using cheese, sprinkle it on top and put the skillet into the preheated oven to melt the cheese.
  • Remove and serve with salad and a garlic version of coconut flour biscuits. Salut!


I make my own spaghetti sauce, but it is possible to find good store-bought brands. Just look for a glass jar with no added sugars or chemicals.
