Not your normal noodles...

Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Meat Sauce

My dear friend Jillian recently suggested we cook spaghetti squash for dinner.
What a pleasant surprise our meal was!
Not only was it healthy, but it was relatively easy to make.

Simple recipe:

2 Spaghetti Squash
1/2 red onion
Lean ground turkey
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup of red wine
salt, pepper, garlic salt, Italian seasonings, chili flakes... to taste
Shaved Parmesan

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put whole spaghetti squash in for 10 minutes to soften. Cut in half and put on cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Put back in oven for 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute onions in sauce pan. Brown turkey meat. Once browned, start adding to make your own version of sauce. Simmer and wait for squash to be done.
When squash is done you will be able to take a fork and scrap out the flesh. It somewhat resembles noodles.

Bon Appetite!
