Ingredients

    2 cans plum tomatoes pureed
    1 6oz can tomatoe paste
    1 bulb roasted garlic (approx 8 cloves)
    1 cup chopped onions
    1 cup chopped red peppers
    2 cups chopped spinach
    1 cup diced mushrooms
    3/4 cup grated carrots
    2 tbsp ground oregano
    2 tbsp ground thyme
    2 oz grated romano cheese
    1 pound extra lean ground turkey
    1 2lbs spaghetti squash

Tips

to roast garlic, cut off pointed end of garlic, leave skin on, this way the tops of the bulb are exposed, drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil oil over exposed cloves and wrap entire thing in tin foil and roast 45-60 minutes. I usually roast 3-4 bulbs at a time and keep them in the fridge, i use roasted garlic where i would have used butter before, like on steamed veggies etc.


Directions

*cut squash in half, remove seeds, place face down on cookie sheet with 1/2 cup salted water and bake in over for 60 mins

*add remaining ingredients into a large saucepan, including raw ground turkey and bring to gentle boil then lower heat and simmer on low heat for 60 minutes

* once squash is cooked use a fork to scrap out squash (has spaghetti texture and look) spoon it into the sauce and cook for another 5-10 minutes

serve and enjoy !

Serving Size: divide into 6 portions, freezes well
