Thanks to ground turkey breast, savoury veggies, diced tomatoes, and spaghetti squash, this hearty, filling dinner is a fabulous option when you don't want to use any Points. We love the sauce over spaghetti squash, but you could also use spiralized zucchini. Garnish with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan if desired.
