Dinner in a hurry

Got home late tonight from the 4:00 workout, around 5:45 or so, and all the kids thought they were dying of hunger.  What to do?  I had 2 pkgs of ground turkey, a motley of veggies etc., so what I came up with was this:

Spaghetti over Acorn Squash with a side of Green Beans.   

Tonight I grabbed for 2 jars of Organic No Salt Spaghetti sauce that meet the Paleo guidelines, added a can of organic diced tomatoes, some diced fresh basil ( from my window sill plant, loving it!), and a little garlic powder.  Browned the ground turkey with some onion and added it to the tomato mixture, simmering for at least 30 minutes while I prepared the Acorn squash.  Halved the acorn squash, scoop seeds and covered with plastic wrap or you could just place upside down on a plate.  Microwave for 8 minutes, let cool and scooped out the squash and placed in a serving bowl.
We each had a serving of squash topped with a generous amount of Spaghetti sauce and a side of green beans, yum!

You could just leave the squash in the peel and serve it filled with the spaghetti sauce too, I was just short on squash, and knew my littlest ones wouldn't eat the whole 1/2 squash.  
 My favorite squash to use is spaghetti squash but I didn't have any and this worked quite well.

So quick, so easy, and so yummy. 

One of those great dinners in a pinch.

Sorry no pictures tonight, we were all to hungry and just scarfed it all up immediately.
