Southwest Spaghetti Squash Casserole

I love spaghetti squash, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite things to incorporate in recipes.

Southwest Spaghetti Squash Casserole

We had this a few weeks back and it was a huge healthy hit especially when you need that mexican food fix.

Write a review
  1. 1 good size Spaghetti Squash cooked
  2. 1 lb 99% lean Ground Turkey
  3. 2 tbsp of Mrs. Dash Southwest Seasoning
  4. 2 tbsp of McCormick Salt Free Mexican Seasoning
  5. 1 tbsp of Kosher salt
  6. 1 Small yellow onion-chopped
  7. 1 can of drained black beans
  8. 1.5 cups of corn (I used frozen)
  9. 1 package of fresh pico de gallo (you could also use rotel if that's what you have)
  10. 2 cups of 2% shredded mexican cheese
  1. In a skillet cook your turkey (spray down with pam first because it will get a little sticky because the turkey is so lean). Once cooked stir in seasonings, onions, pico de gallo and corn and cook for 5-10 minutes. Stir in black beans, spaghetti squash and 1 cup of cheese. Empty the skillet into a greased baking pan then sprinkle 1 cup of cheese on top. Bake on 350 for about 20-25 minutes. I recommend serving with greek yogurt/ sour cream, salsa and tortilla chips if you'd like.

    This looks great!! I love spaghetti squash too. Never thought to use it with Tex Mex flavors (which I also love)!
