Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Sauce
|Food Mall: Ground Turkey|
• 1 lb of ground turkey
• 1 large can of tomato paste
• 2 cans of water
• 1 c mushrooms
• 1 clove of minced garlic
• 1-2 T oregano

In a large pan, heat oil and add onions, garlic and turkey. Cook until meat turns brown. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a simmer and cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While the sauce is simmering, cut the spaghetti squash in half. Place cut side up, covered with plastic wrap in a microwave safe dish for 10 minutes. Remove from microwave, and let sit, covered, for at least 5 minutes.

Heap spaghetti into a bowl and serve.
