Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti

Spaghetti Squash

Preheat the oven to 375
Cut the Squash in half length wise, dig out the seeds etc. (Save seeds to roast later if you want)
Put the squash on a pan or baking dish, either up or down, I've heard both ways, it might be a little more tender with the skin on top, but you could flip it half way through just to make sure it cooks right. cover with tin foil and bake for about 40-50 mins or until tender. Remove from oven when done and scrape the squash away from the rind. It should look like spaghetti. ;)

Spaghetti Sauce

This recipe was actually a pizza sauce recipe, but I thought it might taste good on the squash. It's a little big more of a fresh taste. I'll try it tomorrow and let you know how it goes!

28 oz of diced tomatoes (or I just blend up whole ones in the blender)
1 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Garlic Clove
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 Tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp salt
Simmer 10-12 mins. (longer if you like a richer flavor)

*I cooked some onion and shredded zuccini in some oil first, then added the tomatoes and seasonings. Gave it a little more heartiness.

Turkey Meatballs

1 lb ground Turkey
1 tsp Seasoning Salt
Dash of pepper or a few of Mrs. Dash
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 Tsp Parsley

Roll into balls and bake in the oven with the squash for about 20-30 mins. Or you could make them a little smaller or patty style and do it on the stove. Or you can just add the ground turkey to your sauce recipe.
I served this with broccoli, boiled cabbage and some fruit.
I also made a pot of paste for those little ones who would most definitely rebel on the spaghetti squash... and the not so little ones... ;)
