Skinnytaste Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Bolognese


  • 2 ounces pancetta, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped (1 small) onion
  • 1 celery stalk, minced
  • 1 medium carrot, minced
  • 1.3 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
  • kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil


  1. In a large Dutch oven, saute the pancetta over medium heat until the fat melts, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, add the butter, onion, celery and carrot and cook until soft, 5-6 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the turkey and season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Cook until no longer pink, 7-8 minutes, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon. Add the wine and cook until reduced, 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, milk, tomatoes, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile using a sharp knife, pierce the squash 8 or 9 time. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Turn the squash and cook until the shell is tender, 5-8 minutes depending on the size. Let cool for 5 minutes. Half the squash lengthwise. (There should be no resistance, but if there is, microwave it a few more minutes.) Remove the seeds and use a fork to scrape out the spaghetti-like strands of squash.
  3. Remove and discard bay leaf; stir in the basil. To serve, put 1 cup spaghetti squash in each of 6 serving bowls and top each with a generous 3/4 cup of sauce.
