  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds. Place squash halves on a baking sheet, face up. Drizzle with Avocado Oil and sprinkle with Ultimate Steak Seasoning. Bake 45 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine turkey, egg, 1 tablespoon Onion Onion Seasoning and 1 tablespoon Rustic Herb Seasoning. Mix just to combine. Form into 28-30 meatballs. Place on a large, greased rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven with squash. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  3. In large saucepan, combine tomatoes, remaining 1 tablespoon Onion Onion Seasoning and 1 tablespoon Rustic Herb Seasoning. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat; add meatballs to sauce. Simmer 10 minutes or until spaghetti squash is done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hubby's new favorite sauce My hubby and I absolutely loved this. He said it's his new favorite sauce. So I'll have to keep the recipe for the sauce part on hand for other meals as well. I made the meatballs a little smaller so we could have more of them. Appearance of more tricks your mind, even though ounce-wise it was the same per serving. Tip I learned to help with losing weight. We WILL be making this many times again in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Great Spaghetti Squash and I don't get along. This made it pretty fair. I loved the meatballs and the sauce. I think I may cut back just a bit on the Rustic Herb in the sauce. It's got quite a kick. Great alternative to spaghetti sauce!
