Turkey Zucchini Meatballs

You had me at hello…is what I said when I saw this post about these amazing meatballs of turkey goodness. And YES I know people do meatless Monday…sorry I don’t

I made a few changes but more so with how to cook it..I often don’t have time to brown and then bake and make my own sauce

My alterations were the following:

1/2 jar of seasoned sauce and 1 can of plain sauce 

layer the bottom of a large baking dish with sauce, using a scooper place the meatballs into the pan and then add the rest of the seasoned sauce with the plain sauce to the top of the meatballs and put more Parmesan cheese on top and then bake in the oven at 375 for 40 minutes and TADA…I promise…it will be TADA 

Spaghetti Squash with Ground Turkey

Have you ever tried cooking spaghetti squash? Have you almost cut your hand off in the process of trying to cut it in half before baking it in the oven for what felt like forever? Here is a new trick – prick the squash and place in a microwave safe plate and microwave for 2 minute increments for about 12 minutes. Then carefully (with mittens) cut it in half with a sharp knife and scrape the squash into a 9*9 oven safe container. While the squash is cooking away cook onion and garlic til golden in coconut oil and then add 1 lb of ground turkey and parsley. Once that is cooked remove any grease and then add 3/4 of a jar of pasta sauce and mix together with Parmesan cheese. Place turkey on top of the squash and bake in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes. Image
