Paleo Pumpkin Turkey Bake
prep 10 mins
cook 25 mins
total 35 mins
yield 4-6 servings
1 spaghetti squash (approx 2 lbs), cooked and shredded
1 lb ground turkey
2.5 cups of Pumpkin Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup of coconut cream or heavy cream (if tolerated)
3-4 large handfuls of spinach, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet brown ground turkey.
While turkey is cooking heat sauce in a large pot and mix in coconut cream. Once combined mix in spinach, cooked spaghetti squash, and ground turkey.
Pour mixture into a 9x13 baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
If you don't have an Instant Pot you can cook the spaghetti squash by baking it. Cut it in half, remove the seeds, and brush the inside with fat/oil of choice. Place squash cut sides down on a baking sheet and roast in a 375 degree oven for 40 minutes or until the squash can be easily pierced with a fork. Let cool and pull insides with a fork.
