Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash Boats – Delicious, healthy, easy to make Spaghetti Squash boats loaded with ground turkey, tomatoes, kale and feta cheese.
If you’re wondering about my dinner game plan, again… like, you’re curious if I just open up my fridge, pull out a bunch of ingredients and throw them into a pan/pot/spaghetti squash boats, you wouldn’t be wrong. You know me so darn well!
Hi Hi! Happiest Wednesday to you all! I’m crossing my fingers that it will be a good one. I have been up all night cleaning because, the youngest little girl in this house decided it was way too long since the last time she had the stomach bug. Ugh. And, going forward, if I stutter or skip a word, don’t mind me. I’m sleeping at my desk. 💤
Also, yesterday I got through the day with Enrique Iglesias pandora station. I hadn’t… uhm…bailé? Is that how you say it? Probably not. But yeah. I hadn’t danced like that in ages, all by myself, in the middle of the living room. My husband doesn’t know it, yet, but Enrique is my Hall Pass. 💕 😉
Oh yes, of course. We’re here for the food. Okay.
That right there is a big boat of wonderful that is going to change your eating-better life.
I can handle a dish like this because… let’s be honest – if you know me at all, then YOU know that I can live on Mediterranean foods, or Mediterranean-inspired foods, day in and day out. 🍴
One of the main things that attracted me to STAR Fine Foods was their support of, and focus on the Mediterranean Diet. Olive oil has a well-deserved reputation for helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. Most of that reputation is from research into the Mediterranean Diet, so named because it is a collection of dietary habits followed by those in the region of the Mediterranean Sea.
Another Mediterranean favorite, Grapeseed Oil, is a great source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, among other things. STAR Grapeseed Oil is mild and a good choice when cooking foods with subtle flavors, selecting a base for salad dressings or baking, but also frying and sauteing. If you are not a fan of the stronger flavor of Olive Oils, Grapeseed Oil should be your new bestie.
Now that I’ve edumacated us a bit about healthy cooking oils, thanks for coming!! mmkkay baiyyyy!
I’m not saying that you should fall in love with Spaghetti Squash Boats and Grapeseed oil. All I’m saying is that you WILL fall in love with ’em. For sure. No doubt.
My husband, the one that prays to pasta, especially spaghetti, wanted seconds and thirds after finishing up one of these boats. Filled with a fantastic mixture of ground turkey with tomatoes and KALE – *casually flips hair over shoulder* – this is like, the most perfect healthy dinner to ever exist. Best part is that even my picky 6 year old hadn’t a clue about all the veg-wonders happening around her.
I’m telling you, this needs to be your dinner.
Tryyyyy it. Puhlease.
