  • Serving Size4

    Ingredients

    For Spaghetti squash:

    • 1 spaghetti squash
    • Approved oil, for drizzling
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1 tsp dried oregano

    For the sauce:

    • 1 lb ground turkey
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 T approved oil
    • 1 tomato, chopped
    • 1/2 jar of tomato sauce, no sugar added
    • 1 T Italian seasoning
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • Fresh basil, for garnish

    Directions

    1

    Preheat oven to 400 F. 

    2

    Using a sharp knife, cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and discard. Place the halves with the cut side up on a rimmed baking sheet. 

    3

    Drizzle with approved oil and season with salt, pepper, and oregano. 

    4

    Roast the squash in the oven for 40-45 minutes, until you can poke the squash easily with a fork. Let it cool until you can handle it safely. Then scrape the insides with a fork to shred the squash into strands.

    5

    While the spaghetti squash is roasting, melt approved oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 

    6

    Add chopped onion and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add ground turkey and brown the meat, stirring occasionally. 

    7

    Season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped tomato, tomato sauce, and Italian seasoning and stir to combine. 

    8

    Simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally, while the spaghetti squash finishes roasting. Serve over spaghetti squash with basil for garnish.
