This spaghetti squash with turkey-meat sauce is perfect for comfort food cravings without being over indulgent. This recipe is kid friendly and low carb!
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- 1 8oz package of mushrooms (2 cups)
- 2 cups chopped zuchinni (2-3 zuchinni)
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium spaghetti squash (baked) see instructions above!
- 3 cups chopped kale or spinach
- 4 cups pasta sauce
Cook turkey in pan on medium heat, for about 6 minus add onions and garlic halfway through the browning process.
Once turkey is fully cooked add in the chopped veggies. Let them sweat a bit. Add leafy greens in last.
Add in pasta sauce and seasoning (oregano & salt and pepper to taste)
Once the pasta sauce has simmered for about 10 minutes and the squash is fully baked, cut squash into fourths and serve sauce in squash. OPTION: you may also use a fork to scoop the squash out of the shell and onto a plate and serve turkey meat sauce over it. Store leftover squash and sauce separately in airtight containers. It should last a week in the fridge.
