National Spaghetti Day

This is a great spaghetti recipe if you are on a Ketogenic diet or just want to eat less carbohydrates.  I like cutting the squash in half, rubbing it with oil, salt & pepper and then roasting in the oven at 350 degrees for about an hour instead of microwaving.

Spaghetti Bolognese

2 small spaghetti squash
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 med. Onion, chopped
1 med. Red pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp. Salt
12 oz.  ground turkey
28 oz. Can crushed tomatoes
½ oz. Pecorino cheese, grated
¼ tsp. Black pepper

Poke holes all over squash; microwave on High 15 min.


In large saucepan, heat oil on med-high; add onion, red pepper, garlic & salt. Cook 10 min, stirring often. Add turkey, breaking up meat with side of spoon. Cook 5 min. Add tomatoes. Simmer 10 min. Stir in cheese & black pepper.


Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and scrape strands with fork. Serve sauce over squash.

Garnish with Pecorino.
