Using spaghetti squash instead of pasta in this dish not only saves about 250 calories per serving, but it also creates a wonderful sweet foil for the savory turkey meat sauce.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium until crisp, 8 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic and cook until vegetables are tender, 15 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  • Add 1 tablespoon oil and turkey to skillet and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until almost cooked through, 5 minutes. Add bacon, vegetables, tomatoes, and pinch of red-pepper flakes, if using, to skillet and bring to a simmer; cook until turkey is cooked through and sauce is thickened, 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over spaghetti squash and sprinkle with Parmesan.

Our first time trying spaghetti squash and this was a hit. My husband loved it and put it on the list of "you definitely need to make that again". Thanks for the great recipe!

At 5 or 6 weight watcher points per serving and a lot of flavor, this one's a keeper!

This was so yummy! I of course added a little extra italian seasonings as I love a lot of flavor. I also didn't have any bacon, so I used a small amount of chopped up ham left over from Easter. But you really felt like you were having pasta! It was easy to fix and will definitely be on my regular menu!

Made this for a 4 person dinner party and it was a BIG hit. One of the people didn't like squash (I didn't know this before I made it) but he loved it and went back for seconds. Lots of flavour in the sauce.
