Spagehtti Squash with Kale and Turkey Meatballs

On my 101 things in 1001 days list item #47 is to try a new recipe each week. I confess I did not do this since the start of my list but I have been making new cooking creations twice a week for the past month. This is one of my successful dishes and it was also my first attempt at making Spaghetti Squash.

Since I had never cooked a Spaghetti squash before I had to google directions, and thanks to this video it turned out perfectly.

Ingredients for Spaghetti

1 Spaghetti Squash

2 Cups Cookin’ Greens chopped kale

½ cup organic marinara sauce

1 tbsp Olive oil

3 cloves of crushed garlic

Sea Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350◦, cut squash in half, scoop out insides with a spoon, and place face down on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 30 -35 minutes, if fork can puncture skin easily than squash is ready. Remove Squash from oven, and set aside to cool enough to be easily handled.
  2. In meantime heat oil and garlic in a skillet over medium –low heat.  Add Cookin’ Greens Kale sauté for  5 – 7 minutes, add salt to taste.
  3. Use fork to scrape out the stringy pulp from the squash and place in skillet with kale, add sauce and mix together.

Turkey meatballs – I got the recipe from The Gracious Pantry , I did find the meatballs a little dry. I think next time that I make them I may mix in salsa and not parmesan to give them some moisture.

Note: the Spaghetti Squash with kale is great on its own but to make it a filling meal you need to add a protein.


  1. Sounds great, I’m going to have to try it out!
