You can never go wrong with a pasta bake… especially one with no carbs! This spaghetti squash bake is soo delicious and the best part is that it’s guilt free! I was really craving our Rigatoni Bake but I didn’t want all the calories so I swapped the pasta with the squash and the sausage with the turkey and it turned out to be SO good! I was a little scared to use ground turkey but it turned out to be really delicious! DSC_0849

For the bake you will need spaghetti squash, an onion, garlic, ground turkey, a can of crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, dried parsley, dried basil, grated parmesan and fresh mozzarella. I also like to add fresh basil to the top after it has baked.

Start preparing the squash by cutting off the top of each one.

Stand the squash up on a cutting board on the flat side.

Cut the squash in half (lengthwise) and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.

Make sure all four sides are cleaned out and sprinkle with salt.

Drizzle with olive oil and add the crushed red pepper. DSC_0590

Place each side face down on a baking sheet and place in a 375 degree oven for 35-35 minutes.

Start the sauce by dicing up one small white onion.

Chop up the two cloves of garlic.

In a large pot over a medium flame heat tablespoon of olive oil and add in the onions and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes.

Next add in the two pounds of ground turkey. We decided to take a healthy route and go with the turkey and it turned out delicious. BUT you can alway add ground beef or sausage or a combination of both.

Cook the turkey until brown, about 5-7 minutes.

Add in the can of crushed tomatoes and the can of tomato paste.

Next, add in the spices! Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, dried basil and dried parsley. Mix the spices into the sauce and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.

While the sauce is simmering, pull the squash out of the oven and use a fork to scoop out the center. It should easily scoop out into spaghetti like noodles.

DSC_0877

Scoop out all four squash halves and place into a bowl. Toss in half of the parmesan. To lighten the bake up even more, you can skip the step!

DSC_0878

 Place the squash into an even layer in a 9X13 baking dish.

DSC_0882

Add a thick layer of sauce to the squash.

DSC_0883

Top with the remaining parmesan cheese.

DSC_0886

Thinly slice the fresh mozzarella.

DSC_0888

Finally, top the bake with the mozzarella and drizzle with good olive oil. Place into a 375 degree oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
