This high flavor, no pasta dish is not for those who prefer bland food. This dish is surprisingly zesty and even pleases the pasta lovers in my family. There are other recipes similar to this one out there, but none as good as mine! Your family will be asking you to make it again and again.

Ingredients

2
spaghetti squash
1 lb
Italian sausage, mild
1 lb
Italian sausage, hot
1 lb
ground turkey
2 can(s)
tomato sauce (14 oz cans)
4 Tbsp
salsa
2 tsp

Step-By-Step

1The recipe needs two slow cookers (or you can cut the recipe in half and use one). Put one can of tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons of salsa, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, and 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning in each slow cooker. Stir.

2Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Put the squash halves face down in the sauce.

3Combine the mild and hot ground sausage with the ground turkey and shape into balls. Place around the squash. (I make mine about an inch round.)

4Cook on high 3 hours or low 5 hours.
