Turkey Spaghetti Squash Bowl

This recipe is a super close second to our Chicken Lettuce Wraps. These Spaghetti Squash bowls are so good, clean, and healthy!!  I highly suggest making these if you have some extra time to make dinner (just because these have to bake for awhile).  So take notes and give these babies a try :)

Feeds 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour


4 small sized spaghetti squash
1/2 red onion copped
2 jalapenos
handful of grape tomatoes (cut in half)
Approx 3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


Step One:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the spaghetti squash in half (lengthwise). Carve out the seeds and poke with a fork a few times so your squash will soak up the olive oil. Place on a cookie sheet and spray generously with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and coarse ground pepper to taste.

Step Two: Cover the sheet with foil and place in the center of the oven. Your spaghetti squash should need to bake for approx. 1 hour (every oven is different, check to see if you can pull it apart easily with a fork. If so, it's ready.

Step Three: When your spaghetti squash is done, set aside for a few minutes while you prepare the rest. In a medium sized nonstick skillet pan, brown the turkey seasoning with cajun, pepper, and chili powder to taste.

Step Four:  In a separate non stick pan, heat up a tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic. When that is warm, toss in the chopped onion and jalapeno. When your veggies are soft, toss in the tomatoes and saute for about 2 mins.

Step Five:  Build your bowl!  Your spaghetti squash bowl should be soft and seasoned already from baking it. In your bowl throw in a large spoon full of seasoned ground turkey and top it with the sauteed onions, jalapenos, and a few grape tomatoes. To give it some extra flavor, top it off with some fresh chopped basil.

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did!!
