Turkey & Spaghetti Squash

Mamma mia!  Almost like real spaghetti and meatballs. 

1 spaghetti squash
1 can of tomato paste
1/4 cup of salsa
4 oz of turkey
1/2 bell pepper
1/2 onions
1 carrot
1 tomato
2 cloves of garlic
3 tsp of olive oil

Pierce multiple holes in the squash.  Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Saute onions until browned in olive oil and garlic. 
Add finely cut carrot, bell peppers and hot water, as the hot water boils off it will cook the carrots.
Add tomato paste, savoury and paprika.
Add diced turkey.
Add salsa and tomato.  I add salsa for an extra kick of flavour, you could easily add some jarred pasta sauce.

When squash is done, remove from heat and allow to cool enough to handle.
Cut squash in two.
Remove the seeds and softened middle.
Use a fork to tine the edges and remaining squash, it will break apart into spaghetti like strands.
Place squash on plate and top with turkey mixture.
