Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite food holiday. I LOVE everything about the Thanksgiving feast and love to enjoy all of the leftovers.
This stuffed spaghetti squash is a perfect way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or any holiday meal! After so many turkey soups and sandwiches, I need something a little different to appreciate the turkey. And since this spaghetti squash recipe is low carb and keto, it gives it a healthier spin! You can also use chicken in place of the turkey, with leftover chicken still being a perfect option! Find more leftover turkey recipes here!
If you have never had spaghetti squash before, I encourage you to try it! I am not a squash person in general, so I was really skeptical about it. But it is actually good and a great substitute for pasta! Part of the trick is thinking of it as an alternative to pasta and not the exact same thing. The squash is like a crispy, crunchy angel hair and does not carry much flavor, especially when you add everything on top of it. If you want to transition to the idea of it, you can always cook just a little regular pasta and mix it in, I find this helps as well in getting used to it.
The stuffed spaghetti squash is also very filling, even more so than pasta. Just 1/4 of this recipe is more than enough to make me full, so it goes a long way. Find more spaghetti squash recipes here!
You could also really amp up the Thanksgiving flavors by adding some gravy or green bean casserole mixed in. It would also taste great with some leftover cranberry sauce on top for a little acidity!
