Cheesy Ground Turkey & Spaghetti Squash Skillet

I know, two recipes in one week?!

Who am I?

This particular one came about rather spontaneously. I wasn’t trying to come up with any sort of recipe creation, but when I randomly threw it together and realized how delicious it turned out, I knew I had to share it with you guys!

This is toddler approved too! At least in our house. Which, these days, is a huge feat. Winking smile Hunter was chowing down like there was no tomorrow. I could hardly believe it!

This dinner is a must make! In thirty minutes or less, a healthy, delicious, and easy meal is served. You can’t beat it!

Cheesy Ground Turkey & Spaghetti Squash Skillet

by Ashley Wiseman

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients (6-8)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2-3 cups medium cheddar cheese (depending on how cheesy you want it!)
  • Optional: top with cayenne pepper


Pour olive oil into a large skillet.

Cook ground turkey until browned.

While ground turkey is browning, cook spaghetti squash. To cook spaghetti squash, place half of it face down into a glass baking dish with about 1 inch of water in it. Microwave for 10-15 minutes.

Add all the spices and peas to ground turkey. Cook until peas are no longer frozen.

When spaghetti squash is done in the microwave, add it to the skillet.

Pour in cheese and stir until it’s all melted.

Dish into bowls, add cayenne pepper if you want to add a little spice (it’s super yummy!), and enjoy!

We’re making today’s post short and sweet. All my extra time during Hunter’s nap the last couple days has been devoted to studying my RPM tracks and laundry since I got behind on it this week. And let’s be real, as I type this on Thursday night, I really just want to watch my shows!

I hope your weekend is amazing! I’ll be back Monday with a recap of my RPM initial training!

How long do you usually spend on dinners during the week?

What are your plans for the weekend?
