The popularity of low-carb, paleo and gluten-free eating plans has made spaghetti squash one of the vegetables du jour. Though the texture is different from pasta, the squash strands make a nice stand-in for it, creating a light, but satisfying one-dish meal. The recipe below combines the squash noodles -- squoodles? -- with spiced ground turkey studded with corn and peppers for a satisfying dish with Southern flavor.
The squash takes an hour to roast, but you can make this part a day or two ahead. If you do, you’ll be rewarded with a quick-fix, one-dish meal that's sure to satisfy. An extra sharp cheddar cheese is super tasty, but you can substitute any good melting cheese you like.
