Turkey and Prosciutto Bolognese on Spaghetti Squash
If there was one food group I love more than anything it would be pasta. I am a pasta fanatic! I could eat pasta for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I am not sure I could say that about any other food. For some reason a bowl of pasta bolognese is just so comforting… you never want it to end! The only problem is, I can’t eat pasta every meal, not even everyday, so I had to find a solution. Although this spin on pasta bolognese doesn’t have the exact feel, it comes pretty darn close! If you have never tried making spaghetti squash I would highly recommend it. It is such an easy vegetable to prepare and can go with so much… and did I tell you it’s extremely healthy?! After you roast the squash you are able to pull it off the skin with a fork which even makes it look like spaghetti (this may be my favorite part!). I top the squash with a turkey and prosciutto meat sauce which is my LEAN and FLAVORFUL version of bolognese. The prosciutto adds such a depth of flavor in the sauce and after simmering for over an hour this sauce turns out amazing! I even like to eat it on its’ own for leftovers the rest of the week- it is that good! So, if you have a pasta and meat sauce lover in the family I would recommend you give this recipe a try, it definitely works for me!
