I took squash out of skin and put in bowls, which made it easier for my kids to eat. We also had it with a little sour cream and cheese.


cut squash lengthwise and clean out pulp and seeds, then bake at 400F in a making dish with 1/4 inch water, cut squash side down, for 30-45 min or until tender.

Heat oil in large skillet then add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are tender and translucent. Add peppers and cook 3 to 4 min. longer.

Add turkey and spices and brown until turkey is good through. Stir in tomatoes and heat through. Take squash out of pan, and fill each half with turkey mixture. Serve with salsa.
