Ingredients

Instructions

  • Using a large, sharp knife, pierce a spaghetti squash in several places. Place the spaghetti squash in a glass baking dish and cook in the microwave on HIGH for 12 to 15 minutes, turning the squash halfway through cooking.
  • Before handling let the squash stand for 10 minutes. Cut in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and fibers.
  • Using a fork, twist out strands of the spaghetti squash flesh and place in a large bowl. Let stand at room temperature. Save the shells of the squash for stuffing later.
  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and onion. Cook, breaking up the turkey with a wooden spoon, until the turkey is cooked through and the onions are tender.
  • Stir in the garlic, cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the diced tomatoes and spaghetti squash strands, and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
  • Place the spaghetti squash shells on a large baking sheet and fill with the turkey mixture. Top each with 2 tablespoons grated cheese.
  • Place under the broiler and cook until the cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
