1 spaghetti squash
1 lb. ground turkey
1 jar of low-sugar marinara sauce
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese, for topping (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and strings.
Place the two halves of the spaghetti squash, cut-side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until tender.
While the spaghetti squash is baking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook until the turkey is browned and the onion is translucent.
Add the marinara sauce, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Once the spaghetti squash is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, use a fork to scrape the flesh of the squash into spaghetti-like strands.
Serve the spaghetti squash with the turkey marinara sauce on top. You can also sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top, if desired.
