Spaghetti Squash with Turkey

Y'all know me... 

I ride the easy recipe bus. If I cook something, you'll probably know it. You may think to yourself that Katie is super creative and sometimes, she shares her creative recipes... 

Think again..

Actually, I think some people do. And some people plan better..... ANDDDD some people don't live in NYC. It's so complicated to get food here. That's not an excuse to not eat well. It's just an excuse to not be creative. But I digress, today I cooked. And it was awesome.

We just baked a spaghetti squash for 45 minutes like below: 

It will be very hot, so use a pot holder to turn it over, and remove the seeds.

Each cup of spaghetti squash is 10g of carb. Each cup of pasta is 78g. HOW ABOUT THEM APPLES? Ridiculous. So, yes, I'll take the spaghetti squash because noodles taste no different.

While this was cooling, I cooked some ground turkey (99% lean Trader Joes).

Then, I didn't wanna heat up the entire can of spaghetti sauce. I wanted to save some for later as we were just going to be using some of it. So, I literally microwaved 1/4 cup of sauce. This sauce is a tradition in our family. We have used this same sauce for spaghetti nights at Mawmaws since I was a little girl. They stopped selling it, and so at that point, we went to the manufacturer. I don't use my sauce often, more like ever, because I'm so scared about using it. However, my mawmaw came home from rehab today so I thought it was appropriate.

I weighed out my ground turkey at this point with my old school scale. I really want a fancy one, but am just being cheap as this does the trick.

Then, I mix it all together, and VOILA! Deliciousness!

Hope you enjoy this as much as me. You can use any sauce that you wish! :)

Macros for 1/4 cup sauce, 1 cup spaghetti squash and 2 oz ground turkey is 18g P // 13g C // 2g F !!! You literally can't beat that!

With love and healthy spaghetti,

Katie
