SPAGHETTI SQUASH CAPRESE BAKE
Adapted from Pink Troll Kitchen
1 lb. ground turkey (optional)
1 large spaghetti squash
3 cloves garlic
1 can of petite diced tomatoes, drained really well
3-4 tbs of fresh basil
1 overflowing handful fresh baby spinach (optional)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese + 3-4 slices of fresh mozzarella for the top
salt & pepper & red pepper flakes to taste
Preheat your oven to 375. Cook the spaghetti squash one of two ways:
1. Slice spaghetti squash in half, scoop out seeds, and put olive oil, salt, and pepper on the cut halves. Place in 375 degree oven for 45-55 mins, until strands of squash can easily be pulled away with a fork.
2. Pierce squash several times with sharp knife. Heat in microwave on a plate for 10-12 minutes.
