Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place each squash half cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake uncovered for about 45 to 60 minutes or until a fork goes easily into the shell. Allow to cool and scoop out the strands of squash with a large spoon and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion, garlic and scallions and saute for 2 minutes. Add the turkey and cook for 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and wine and bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Add the capers, oregano, red pepper flakes and parsley; simmer for 5 minutes. If the squash has cooled too much, reheat it in the microwave, covered for 2 to 3 minutes. Top the squash with the sauce and serve.

Instead of baking the spaghetti squash, try microwaving. I put cut side down in a pyrex dish, add about 1/3 cup water, cover with plastic wrap, and it takes about 15 minutes.

Sooooo good! My boyfriend and I loved this recipe! However I did make some alteration to the cooking of the spaghetti squash. Instead, I cut it in half, placed it open side UP, sprinkled it with seasoning salt, garlic powder, dried minced onion, and oregano, and then placed half a stick of butter inside each half of the squash. I added a whole package of turkey (20 oz.) then followed the rest of the recipe to a tee. This puts any type of pasta recipe to shame! My boyfriend was excited to have leftovers for the next day as well. I will definately be using this recipe again!

Absolutely delicious and as easy as it gets. I didn't have ground turkey on hand, so I removed the casings from 3 reduced fat sausage links, sauteed separately and drained the grease, then added to the sauce as it simmered. I also added a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings (undrained), which made the sauce extra hearty. Next time I'm going to try adding some mushrooms, or maybe using cannellini in place of the turkey for an even healthier (and Lenten appropriate!) version. Word to the wise - don't skimp on the grated cheese!
