Tasty Tuesday Recipe

Spaghetti Squash Bolognese

I love Spaghetti Squash! A lot of people even use it to replace pasta in their favorite recipes. But, I just can’t bring myself to give up my favorite starch, so I include some whole wheat pasta for my carb-loving friends. Carbs aside - this recipe is chock full of healthy veggies and low fat protein.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey
  • ½ yellow onion (minced)
  • 4 fresh Tomatoes (diced)
  • 2 Carrots (grated)
  • 2 cups Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 small roasted Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 Tbs Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • ½ box of Whole Wheat Pasta
How to Cook Squash
  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • cut squash in half and remove seeds
  • drizzle with olive oil and wrap with aluminum foil
  • bake for 1 hour or until tender.
  • when cool, remove squash from skin.
Bolognese Preparation
  • in a large non-stick stock pot brown ground turkey
  • just before turkey is fully cooked add onions, carrots and a bay leaf
  • cook until onions are tender
  • add the diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes and the chicken stock
  • bring to a boil and simmer for one hour.
  • after one hour add Spaghetti Squash and bring to a boil

My personal preference is to pour this over whole wheat pasta, but it is perfect without as well. Also a great way to cut down on those pesky carbs.
