Ingredients

1 pound organic ground turkey

1 onion (finely chopped)

3 cloves garlic (minced)

1 shallot (diced)

1 cup oats (coarsely ground)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 eggs (lightly beaten)

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
1 large spaghetti squash

1 cup water

1 tablespoon olive oil

sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 jar Boutique-brand marinara sauce – I like Rao’s . You want to find a sauce that uses olive oil, is low in sugar and natural ingredients

1 8 ounce can organic tomato sauce (I like Muir Glen)

1 14.5 ounce can organic diced tomatoes (I like Muir Glen)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup onion (chopped)

1/2 cup green bell pepper (chopped)

2 cloves garlic (minced)

8 ounce baby spinach or baby kale

fresh parsley and/or basil, to garnish

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients (above the spaghetti squash) and mix by hand to combine. Roll 1 1/2″ meatballs and place on a baking drying rack that has been placed on a foil covered baking sheet. Bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes.
2. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Place cut side down in a baking dish. Prick top with fork or knife. Add water to pan and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. The squash is done when you can easily slide a fork through. Don’t over cook or the squash will be mushy. Scrape the squash strands into a bowl and add olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
3. Heat olive oil in a heavy large pan or Dutch oven. Add onion, pepper and garlic and cook until fragrant and tender.

4. Add marinara, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and bring to a simmer.

5. Add cooked meatballs and simmer for about 20 minutes.

6. Add spinach and cook until just wilted.

7. Serve over spaghetti squash and garnish with parsley and basil.
