Since I know you are not really into the red meat at all, and like seafood, I can recommend "Zest for Life" by Connor Middelmann-Whitney. It has a FEW recipes that suggest the sauce can go on the pasta, but even those it suggests on top of green beans as a variation. (And, of course, spaghetti squash really does work.) Fantastic recipes, largely grain-free. While it's a "Mediterranean" oriented cookbook, she really is primal-friendly and I'm loving the book.
The other classic paleo/primal books feature plenty of red meat, but also chicken or seafood if you want to stick with those. I think I gather that what you're needing is a way to make VEGETABLES awesome to you. Seafood is fabulous for you, so I wouldn't worry about your animal protein factor. Let's see, for great veggies:
Make It Paleo
Zest for Life
And I've gotten some fabulous recipes off this fellow's website. I really ought to buy his book: paleodietlifestyle.com/paleo-diet-recipes/
Joy of Cooking--there's no end of how to make wonderful grain-free things in there!
Everyday Paleo really gave me my big boost, and I love that cookbook, but your emphasis might be different. She has some seafood, but there's a lot of pork and beef.
For now, from your hello post, it sounds like you need to skip the simulations of old grain faves and try new directions and bump up the veggies. I think the things I listed above are one good set.
