Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

We have been on vacation for 2 weeks…eating out for 2 weeks. So basically we feel like a big pile of garbage. Now that we are back we are committed to eating healthy. This is one of our staples that we eat all the time. Replacing your noodles with spaghetti squash is a great way to cut calories and to sneak some veggies for your kids. Every since the first time we made this we rarely made the noodle version spaghetti.

Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

Ingredients

  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Ground turkey (Jenni-o)
  • Spaghetti Sauce

Instructions

  1. Squash: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut spaghetti squash lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Pierce with a fork. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, Italian seasonings and garlic salt to your personal liking. Cover with foil and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours cut side up. You don't want it to be crunchy or soggy when you scrape it out. Once cooked, let cool for a couple minutes then scraped out the squash with a fork.
  2. Brown turkey and drain. Add spaghetti sauce and serve over spaghetti squash noodles.

  3. Making this tonight! Hope it’s hearty enough to fill my fiancΓ© πŸ™‚

  4. Your spaghetti squash recipe was my favorite one that I’ve tried. Unfortunately lately when I visit this web page to get the recipe it’s covered by a recipe for Kimi’s Parmesan chicken. Is there anyway you can fix this so I can get the recipe again? Thanks.

  5. i used to jab holes in the squash and stick it in the microwave. baking is way better. baking allows for the seasonings to flavor it better. thanks! love the site. can’t wait to try the peanut butter “cheese ball” πŸ™‚
