How To Cook Spaghetti Squash:


1 spaghetti squash

3 chopped green onions

½ cup diced shallots or onions

5 cloves minced garlic

2 tablespoons EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

1 pound of ground turkey or ground chicken

1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano

1 teaspoon celery seeds

½ teaspoon crushed or ground basil

1 teaspoon of thyme

½ teaspoon finely chopped rosemary leaves

½ teaspoon ground sage

1-3 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley

2 ½ cups crushed tomatoes (canned or fresh)

**1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

**1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash:


Wash the squash. Cut into two halves and remove the seeds.

Place the halves on a baking sheet so that the cut side is facing down.

Bake in a 325 F oven for an hour.

When you can pierce the outer covering with a fork you can remove the baking sheet from the oven.

Once the squash halves are cool enough to handle use a fork or spoon to remove the strands on the inside of the shells.

Put the olive oil into a large sauté pan and adjust the heat setting to medium or medium/high.

Saute the shallots, onions, garlic and green onions for 1-2 minutes.

Place the meat into the pan.

Add the remaining seasonings (except for the parsley) and cook for 5-8 minutes on a medium heat setting.

Now add the crushed tomatoes along with any juice.

Reduce the heat to a lower setting and allow the ingredients to simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Toss the strands of spaghetti squash into the pan and then top with the parsley just before serving.

***You can also add a little Romano or Parmesan cheese to the top of this healthy and filling dish.
