I don’t remember having a fondness for this little gem, the (at least for me) dreaded spaghetti squash. But I have a friend at work who loves, loves, loves, it! So I gave it a try and guess what. I have moved over to the spaghetti squash lovin’ side.
And with this tasty little gem I made this:
It is kind of a spaghetti/chili sauce all in one. This is how I made the sauce:
1 lb. of ground turkey
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 – 2 oz. can of diced chilies
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the turkey and onion until the onion is translucent and the meat is nearly done. Add the garlic, green chilies, tomatoes and spices. Let it simmer over medium to low heat until it reduces to your liking. I simmered it about 30 minutes and it was perfect.
Serve over the spaghetti squash and you will be hooked.
