Dearest Readers and Eaters,
Buongiorno! Hope you are hungry because today’s recipe is sumptuous. Yet new year’s resolution-friendly. Sharing Weight Watchers Italian turkey and spaghetti squash casserole for today’s Tasty Tuesday. This is my favorite ‘pasta’ dish these days. I think you’ll love it, too.
Let’s Get Cooking: Italian Turkey and Spaghetti Squash Casserole
If you had told me last month that I would be cooking and eating spaghetti squash, I’d have laughed in your face (rude, I know)! First heard mention of Weight Watchers Italian turkey and spaghetti squash pie on my fashionista friend Cindi’s blog, Middle Sister Style. When I emailed Cindi for the recipe she pointed me in the direction of the Weight Watchers site. And I found the recipe there. So, while my oldest daughter Brennyn and granddaughter Cady were visiting, we decided to make it together. Oh, girls, I am all about spaghetti squash now. Let me tell you. I have been missing out. Pinning spaghetti squash recipes all over Pinterest and it is my new fav food. Pasta without the guilt! Yes, please, all day long.
If you don’t belong to WW, I am not sure if you can access their recipes. So I pinned the recipe here, just in case you can’t. I would say my version was more of a casserole than a ‘pie’. Of course, it isn’t sweet like a dessert but I didn’t bake it in a pie plate either. Used a 9″ x 9″ square baking dish instead.
Here’s what you will need to pick up at the store for this recipe. As I began putting this post together, realized the spaghetti squash is a little hard to see in the photo. Be sure you pick up one of those! Otherwise this would just be Italian turkey casserole.
