  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place spaghetti squash halves, cut sides down, on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until flesh is tender and easily shreds when punctured with a fork, 20 to 30 minutes. Carefully shred flesh with a fork until it resembles spaghetti.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir bell peppers, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until slightly tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add ground turkey to vegetable mixture; cook and stir until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  5. Mix black beans, sun-dried tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken bouillon, chili powder, garlic powder, seasoned salt, cumin, and red pepper flakes into ground turkey mixture; cook until heated through and flavors have blended, about 10 minutes.
  6. Spoon spaghetti squash onto each plate; top with ground turkey mixture.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't have spaghetti squash or simply don't prefer it, you can use regular pasta noodles, rice, or even use a tortilla and use the mixture as a filling. The possibilities are up to you!
  • Feel free to use any type of protein. I used ground turkey because that is what I had, but ground beef, tofu, or even an extra can of beans would be great.

Didn't love it, didn't hate it. It was definitely worth trying out, but I'm still looking for my go-to spaghetti squash main dish.
