  • Summary

    This warming and healthy fall meal is a favorite at our house! I made this "spaghetti" for my niece and nephew who are picky eaters, and both of them cleared their plates! I usually don't cook with cheese because I am lactose intolerant, but when I bake a casserole like this, I just leave an end without cheese or with a light sprinkling of cheese, since the rest of the family loves it!

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 large butternut squash (The solid end)
    • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
    • sea salt and black pepper
    • 1 cup onion, chopped
    • 2 bell peppers (I used 1 green, 1 red), chopped
    • 1 pound ground turkey
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne (1/2 makes is medium spicy, 1/4 is mild)
    • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
    • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 cup chopped zucchini (1 medium zucchini)
    • 1 15-ounce can black olives, sliced
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
    • 1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
    • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped finely (optional, garnish)
