- Combine beef, beans, garlic, onion, zucchini and mushrooms and cook on high power until meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Break up meat with a fork several times during cooking.
- Add tomatoes, tomato paste and herbs and season to taste. Cover and cook for 10 minutes more on high power.
- With a fork, scrape out spaghetti squash to form strands. Divide squash between 4 plates and top with meat sauce.
