A delicious lower carbohydrate option that is quick and easy to make!
- 1 large spaghetti squash
- 1/4 cup grated onion (from about 1/2 medium yellow onion)
- 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional but it adds a naturally cheesy/savory flavor)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- Dash of Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoons granulated garlic powder
1/8 cup breadcrumbs (Italian style is great)
1/2 pound ground dark meat turkey or ground beef, grass-fed if possible
1 teaspoon olive oil
No-sugar-added marinara sauce of choice, for serving (optional)
A few quick tips:
-Microwave your spaghetti squash for about 5 minutes prior to cutting it to make it easier to cut through.
-Look for the leaner ground turkey breast like (eg. Jennie-O brand)
-Look for pasta sauce that has no added sugar, or at least one that is less than 45 calories per serving.
