Roasted Acorn Squash Bolognese

Yield: 4 servings


For the squash:

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

For the sauce:

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 carrots, minced
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 handfuls chopped kale
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Carefully cut acorn squash in half, then cut halves into quarters. Scoop out seeds and discard. Place on baking sheet and drizzle olive oil over top of each quarter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake in oven for 30 minutes.

While squash is roasting prepare your sauce:

  1. In a large skillet or medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and carrots and cook for about 5-7 minutes until soft.
  2. Increase to medium-high heat and add turkey to vegetables, crumbling with a wooden spoon or spatula. Cook turkey meat until no longer pink.
  3. Add kale to turkey mixture, one handful at a time. Each time you add the kale, carefully stir into meat mixture until it starts to wilt down.
  4. Once kale is wilted, add crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Add oregano, a big pinch salt and fresh ground pepper and bring to a slow boil. Reduce to low heat and let simmer for about 15- 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust to your liking.
