If you're paleo, SCD, or AIP, you've probably already converted to spaghetti squash instead of spaghetti. Although spaghetti squash is a pretty great replacement, if you're AIP, you know the struggle of trying to find a sauce to top it that tastes even remotely Italian. Well, I've got the answers for you via best nightshade free nomato sauce I've found in my entire life!
This recipe is super simple, easy to make large portions for later, and an easy school or work lunch idea. Let's get started:
-1 Spaghetti Squash
-1 Yellow Squash
-2 Cups Broccoli
-Garlic to taste
-Nomato Sauce (or tomato for SCD or Paleo)
-Nutritional Yeast to taste
-Himalayan Pink Salt to taste
-1 Pound of ground turkey
Step #1: Preheat oven to 425 f. While preheating, cut open spaghetti squash into two halves.
Step #2: Drizzle avocado oil and Himalayan pink salt in spaghetti squash halves. Lay both halves face down on a parchment lined baking pan.
Step #3: Place in oven for around 1 hour.
Step #4: When there is about 20 minutes left on the spaghetti squash, chop onion. Pour enough avocado oil to cover the bottom of a skillet and turn on medium heat. Sautee onion until translucent.
Step #5: Add in yellow squash and zucchini. Sautee until brown. In the meantime, begin steaming your broccoli (I used my Instant Pot but you can use whatever method you wish)
Step #6: Once all vegetables are soft/browned, place in a large mixing bowl to add in later.
Step #7: In the same skillet the vegetables were in, pour a around a TBSP of avocado oil and add ground turkey. Cook until there is no longer any pink. Set aside in skillet.
Step #8: Remove spaghetti squash and flip over to expose center. With a fork, remove all of the seeds. Now, use your fork to scrape out all of the squash and add to skillet with ground turkey.
Step #9: Add in remaining vegetables and sauce of choice.
Step #10: Add salt and garlic to taste.
Step #11: Serve and top with nutritional yeast to taste for a cheesy/parmesan substitute taste.
Step #12: Enjoy!
