have you ever used sphagetti squash? ive made it different ways but one way my Darling Husband has requested several times over and that has satisified a dinner party was roasting it while separately sauteeing some chicken in a tomato sauce (homemade of course) and then mixing it all together with some fresh mozzarella. you could make it even healthier by grilling the chicken. its delicious!

@mrscash:  I was thinking the same thing!


@hollyberry4:  I just made spaghetti squash boats last night, and they were delicious.  I bought one large one, cut it in half, scooped out seeds, and then sprinkled it with salt/pepper/garlic salt and italian seasons.  I roasted them (side up) in the oven for 1 hour @ 350 degrees.  While that was roasting, I diced up chicken sausage (Italian flavored – 2 links) in a skillet, until they were browned.  When the squash was done, I forked it so that the middle was stringlike, and then added marinara sauce at the bottom of the boat.  Then I added the diced sausage on top, another spoonful of marinara, some more season, and then topped it with reduced fat mozz cheese!  I placed back in the oven for 15 minutes, and served.

It was really filling, and tasty!

Do you like ground turkey…this is one of mine and hy hubby’s faves, and it’s SO easy to make…I’m making it tonight.

Spicy Green Beans with Ginger Ground Turkey


  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 8-inch Ginger Root, finely chopped
  • 4 Scallions, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tbsp Paprika (or red pepper flakes)
  • 200g Extra-Lean Ground Turkey
  • 400g Green Beans, cut into 6cm segments
  • 2 tbsp Cooking Wine
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 Red Chilli Pepper, deseeded, thinly sliced


  1. In a frying pan, heat oil on medium heat and fry garlic, ginger, spring onions and paprika until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add ground turkey and fry for 3 minutes, breaking the meat up while you fry it. Add beans, rice wine, soy sauce, and sugar and stir to combine. Raise heat up to high. Add 2 tbsp water let simmer, covered, for about 8 minutes. Shake the pan occasionally with the lid on so the meat doesn’t burn.
  3. Sprinkle red chilli pepper on top to serve.


This recipe is gluten-free if you ensure the soy sauce contains no wheat.
