uncooked spaghetti squash

3 pound(s)

shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1 cup(s)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Put halves in microwave safe dish flesh side down with water 1/4 inch of the way up and microwave on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender and the squash can easily be scooped out with a fork.
  3. While squash is in microwave, sauté garlic in olive oil until aromatic, then add turkey and brown. Add pasta sauce and heat through.
  4. Toss "spaghetti" strands into turkey sauce mixture and transfer to an oven safe casserole dish.
  5. Top with Weight Watchers Four Cheese Italian Style Blend and sprinkle with dried herbs. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
