I know Spaghetti is a favorite meal amongst all of us…. so what if I could show you a healthier alternative that tastes just as good if not better to us….
I have given this recipe out to a lot of my clients, and they have ranted and raved about this one!
1 jar of organic marinara sauce
1/2 of onion (preferably red)
1/2 of red pepper
2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomatoes
1 lb of lean ground turkey meat
2 cloves of garlic
1 cup of mushrooms (if desired)
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
1/2 teaspoon of basil
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 spaghetti squash (cut into fourths)
2 tablespoons of water
In a large skillet combine olive oil, garlic, pepper, mushrooms, and onions till onions are slightly browned. Then add the turkey meat and cook meat throughout. Add marinara sauce, basil, oregano, and sun-dried tomatoes and let simmer for 15 minutes on low.
In a casserole dish add 2 tablespoons of water and place all four pieces of the spaghetti squash into the dish. Microwave on high for 12 minutes and let cool for 5. Remove the seeds from the squash, and use a fork to scoop out the squash so it has a spaghetti – like consistency.
Place squash into a large bowl and pour the meat sauce onto spaghetti.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.
