Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9x13" baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.

  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half and remove seeds.  Rub cut side of flesh with 1 tsp olive oil, then season with 1 tsp Flavor God seasoning.  Place cut side up on lined baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes or until squash can be easily flaked apart with a fork.  Set aside to cool.

  3. Heat remaining olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic and sauté until fragrant.  Add ground turkey and sausage, breaking apart with a wooden spoon.  Season with remaining Flavor God seasoning and continue cooking and breaking apart with a spoon.  

  4. When meat is mostly cooked through, add pasta sauce, stir, and bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Set aside to cool.

  5. Using a fork, scrape spaghetti squash "noodles" from shell and place in a large bowl.  Add red pepper flakes, meat and sauce mixture and mix until combined.

  6. If the squash mixture is hot to the touch, you will need to temper your eggs with some of the liquid before stirring in the eggs.  If it is just warm to the touch, you can stir the eggs in directly.

  7. Grease a deep, 9x9" casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil. Add squash mixture and flatten out on top.  Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until it becomes firm to the touch.  If desired, add parmesan cheese on top for the last 10-15 minutes of baking.

Recipe Notes

You can also make this dish with 93/7 ground chicken, but it will add about 7 grams of fat per serving.
