    1 large spaghetti squash

    2 tablespoons oil

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper, to taste

    1 jar marinara sauce


    1 pound ground turkey

    ⅓ cup parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish

    ¼ cup white onion, finely diced

    1 clove garlic, minced

    ½ cup grated parmesan

    ¼ teaspoon salt

    ½ teaspoon black pepper


    1. Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.

    2. Use a fork to pierce holes down the side of the spaghetti squash. Microwave for 5 minutes.

    3. When the squash is cool enough to touch (5-10 minutes), slice the squash open, length-wise, with a sharp knife.

    4. Scoop out the seeds and drizzle the squash with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

    5. Roast the squash cut-side down for 40 minutes, until easily pierced with a knife.

    6. In a large bowl, gently mix together the ground turkey, onion, parsley, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Form meatballs, and transfer to a greased baking sheet.

    7. Bake in the oven at 400°F/200°C for 20 minutes, until fully cooked.

    8. Using a fork, pull the strands from the cooled spaghetti squash and transfer to serving dish.

    9. Top with hot marinara sauce, and a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
