My Ground Turkey and Marinara Sauce served over spaghetti squash...I promise this is really tasty :) Healthy doesn't always have to mean boring. Enjoy!

Ground Turkey and Marinara Sauce with Spaghetti Squash

1 tablespoon olive oil          

2 lbs. lean ground turkey

1 small onion, chopped

½ cup fresh carrots, peeled and diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon white vinegar

½ cup dry red wine

½ cup water

1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, dried basil, and dried oregano (add more if you like)

2 large cans crushed tomatoes

In a large pot, heat the olive oil and cook the turkey, onions and carrots until turkey is browned.   Add the garlic and remaining ingredients.  Cover and simmer on low for at least 30 minutes.  The longer it simmers, the better it is!  Serve over spaghetti squash for a very low-carb, low-cal meal.


2 spaghetti squash, cooked

Salt, pepper and olive oil

To cook spaghetti squash, carefully cut squash down the middle and scrape out as many of the seeds as you can.  Drizzle the squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place cut side down on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 50 minutes.  Let it cool then take a fork and scrape all the goodness out of the squash J  It will look just like spaghetti and you serve the marinara over it.  Delicious and healthy!
