Oh my goodness…I have the coolest thing to share with you all today – Crock Pot Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Meatballs.
It ALL cooks in the crock pot. Isn’t that crazy? When I saw this idea over at I Wash You Dry, I was amazed and knew that it had to go on my menu plan right away. We love spaghetti squash and actually prefer it over pasta.
I have found some great gluten free pastas, but I really don’t like the heavy feeling of pasta. This is just so light and you feel good after you eat it. If you haven’t tried it…you definitely should. It really resembles the texture of spaghetti noodles.
All you do is cut your spaghetti squash in half and scoop out all of the seeds. Place cut side down in your crock pot and add a jar of spaghetti sauce and meatballs. She used frozen meatballs, but since we have to eat gluten free I just mixed up some homemade meatballs. They were so easy to make and didn’t take but a few minutes.
(I normally make a homemade spaghetti sauce, but for the sake of time I just used a jar in this and it was good. BUT, you could definitely use homemade instead. I normally make this recipe in my crock pot or my family recipe.)
It takes about 5 hours on low or 3 hours on high to cook. Sunday lunches are so hard and we are always ready to eat right when we get home from church so I think this would be perfect for Sundays. Just put it in and after church there will be a hot meal waiting!
I served mine with some steamed broccoli and it made for a really healthy and easy dinner! This will be going on the regular rotation for sure!
