Spaghetti Squash Chaos

my big bro met me at the gym for a workout yesterday! i missed my early gym date (again) and definitely needed to go get it in. i did one of my 6 Pack USA leg day routines and ended it with a burnout lunge-a-thon via the smith machine.

25 lb plates on each side + 100 reps on each leg = #DONE

Spaghetti Squash Chaos

the stuff:

  • 1 large roasted/baked spaghetti squash (30-45 min on 400 deg)
  • 1 lb lean ground chicken or turkey breast, cooked & seasoned (see above)
  • 2 cups packed, fresh spinach
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of choice
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1-2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • hand full of turkey pepperoni slices (approx. 12)

do this:

  1. preheat oven to 350 deg, baking pan with foil and coat it with no stick cooking spray
  2. split spaghetti squash in half, remove seeds/guts
  3. scoop out the flesh of the squash (be gentle!) and add it to your skillet along with your ground meat, tomatoes, spinach, pepper, & olive oil
  4. mix all together until combined
  5. place empty shells on baking sheet and distribute mixture evenly back into shells
  6. top spaghetti half #1 with 1/2 cup shredded cheese; do the same for #2 with the remaining cheese
  7. distribute the pepperoni slices evenly on top of the cheese
  8. bake for approx 10-15 min or just until the cheese melts and/or browns
  9. take out of the oven and sprinkle with the fresh, chopped basil (didn’t have any so i used parsley)

  3. I really appreciate the cooking video tutorials. I’m OCD about getting things right and I’m still working on my cooking skills so written instructions are not enough sometimes but when I can see it made and done, I’m golden. I learn better by watching/visuals so again Thanks!. I will be trying this one out. My husband loves your spaghetti squash and turkey recipe and this is great to get back to the squash!
