Cut through the middle, rake out the seeds and bake face down for 30 min in about 1″ of water on the bottom of the pan 350 or until flesh is easily pierced!
Once cooked you can use your fork to scrape away! If it seems hard to scrape out the squash, return to oven for another 10 minutes or so, it shouldn’t be mushy, it should have a slight crunch. Scoop out and put aside in a bowl. SAVE SHELL
- 1lb of ground bison or 1lb of ground turkey
- 1/2 onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 1 tomatoe
- 1 jar of low sodium tomato sauce
- 3 gloves of garlic
- Spices of choice… I like spicey so I used pepper, chilli red pepper, garlic powder… I love spices!
Sauté bison OR turkey until almost cooked through , add onion,peppers, tomatoes and spices . Sauté together adding tomato sauce last.
I used zucchini and mushrooms to layer with,cut the zucchini into long, wide slices. You can really use any vegetable you like
I basically layered, squash, zucchini, mushroom, sauce then shredded cheese (I use a tiny bit in between each layer , you can use as much as you like) two to three layers depending on the size of your squash (just like you would with a lasagna)
Top with fresh basil and bake on 350 for 30-45 minutes.
