Spaghetti Squash with Red Sauce

Spaghetti Squash with Red Sauce

An easy meal for a weeknight when you have a little time, but don't want to do a lot of work is spaghetti squash with red sauce and ground turkey. You can cook up the ground turkey ahead and then reheat it at serving time. You can even just dump it in with the spaghetti sauce to heat up.

  1. Split the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, scrape seeds out of the middle, and place halves upside down in a baking dish with about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom.
  2. Bake at about 375 for 45 minutes or until the squash is tender and flakes into "spaghetti" when scraped with a fork.
  3. While the spaghetti squash is cooking, brown your ground turkey and drain.
  4. Heat your desired amount of spaghetti sauce (red sauce.)

You can change this up when you want something "special" and make "Chicken Parmesan" by pounding a boneless skinless chicken breast out thin and coating your chicken in Ezekial breadcrumbs and egg/milk wash and baking for about 30 minutes. Place on top of your spaghetti squash and top with red sauce.
