If you need a little help figuring out how to cut and cook your spaghetti squash, check out my short tutorial on How to Cook Spaghetti Squash. I prefer to bake mine in the oven but if you are pressed for time the microwave is just fine.

You can use ground chicken or even ground beef instead of ground turkey. Just be mindful that the nutritional information included on the recipe card will change.
