Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Total Time: 1 Hour 20 Mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 small spaghetti squash, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 12 ounces ground white meat turkey
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place each squash half cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake uncovered for about 45 to 60 minutes or until a fork goes easily into the shell. Allow to cool and scoop out the strands of squash with a large spoon and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion, garlic and scallions and saute for 2 minutes. Add the turkey and cook for 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and wine and bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Add the capers, oregano, red pepper flakes and parsley; simmer for 5 minutes. If the squash has cooled too much, reheat it in the microwave, covered for 2 to 3 minutes. Top the squash with the sauce and serve.
