Turkey Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash is healthy comfort food that will warm you up but not load you up on carbs!
Turkey Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash is a great way to enjoy the flavors of lasagna, without all of the carbs of the noodles and the work of layering it all together! These spaghetti squash boats still have the ingredients of lasagna including tomato sauce, Italian seasonings, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, all together in a healthy spaghetti squash.
While Marc has politely eaten the spaghetti squash dishes I’ve made for him before (like this one), he’s never been the biggest fan. These stuffed spaghetti squash boats, though? He loved it. Like licked-his-spaghetti-squash-bowl-clean loved it.
This is a recipe that I developed for GO VEGGIE, and I used their Lactose Free Mozzarella Shreds and Parmesan Grated Topping. I love to use their cheese products in my every day cooking, and this recipe was no different. They give me that same cozy feeling as regular cheese but with less calories, less fat, no cholesterol, and no saturated fat. I love it!
To make dairy free stuffed spaghetti squash boats, you could swap that ricotta cheese for cashew ricotta. I’ve used this recipe before, but since I was sick over the weekend and Marc was running to the store for me, I thought directing him to the ricotta cheese would be way easier than having him find the nutritional yeast and unsalted raw cashews.
Cooking Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats
The thing that takes the longest in this recipe is cooking the spaghetti squash. While I prefer doing it in the oven, you could cook it in the microwave using these instructions if you are short on time.
While the squash is cooking you can whip up the lasagna filling, which is a combination of turkey sausage, onion, marinara, and kale. After that, all you have to do is fill your squash bowls up and then throw it in the oven for another 10 minutes to get that cheese all nice and melty!
