Spaghetti squash has the same shape as, well, spaghetti, but with a little crunch. The two are so similar you won’t miss the real noodles.


  • 2 spaghetti squash (about 3 pounds total), cut in half, seeds removed
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 can (10 ounces) low-sodium mushroom soup
  • 1 can (10 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup panko



1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Poke squash with a fork and place cut-side-down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven oven and let cool. Turn oven down to 350 degrees. Using a fork, separate strands of squash and place in a large bowl.
2. Set a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add garlic and onion, and saute 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Add turkey and saute 5 minutes, breaking into pieces with a spatula. Drain excess liquid. Add mushroom soup, tomatoes, and 2 cups cheese. Mix and bring to a boil. Add to bowl with spaghetti squash and combine.
3. Combine coconut oil, remaining 1/2 cup cheese, and panko.
4. Spray a 9-by-12-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add spaghetti mixture, sprinkle with cheese and panko mixture, and bake for 30 minutes uncovered. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
