All the paleo diet sites rave about spaghetti squash because it has the mouth feel of pasta without the processed wheat flour. The carbohydrate load is very low and because it’s rather bland, it is a good background for pasta sauces. I have tried it in past summers with little success. It was boring and lack luster. I like to stuff and bake other squashes like acorn and butternut so I decided to give the spaghetti squash another try.
This combination of ground lean turkey, ricotta, sage and parmesan cheese was moist and delicious. It tasted like Thanksgiving on a plate.
Vegetarians make a Thanksgiving dish to share by leaving out the turkey, add more ricotta or some bread crumbs or tofu for a vegetarian dish to share. I’m telling you that you have to try this and let the much maligned spaghetti squash shine. Maybe I’m the only one who maligns it but still … Try it.
The recipe is in the captions because it’s easy, adjustable and no one ever follows or prints recipes anyway. Oh and I’m too lazy to write a recipe. I’m taking my dish to my peeps at Fiesta Friday who know that I will bring a vegetable dish every week to share. I can’t bake fancy desserts but gosh darn it, I can turn a vegetable into a star. Eat your veggies, live long and prosper.
