Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray a baking dish or cookie sheet with non stick spray.  Cut your spaghetti squash in half (which can be very hard to do!) and scoop out the seeds from the middle.  Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper then place both sides face down in your dish.  Cook for 40 minutes or until tender.  Set aside.

Brown your ground turkey in a large skillet.  Once it is cooked through add your marinara.  You can taste it and season as desired.  (I usually add more basil and sometimes a little sugar to cut the tang)

In a small bowl combine your breadcrumbs, parmesan, and shredded mozzarella.

Scoop your prepared sauce into the bowls of the spaghetti squash then top each one with the cheese and breadcrumb mixture.  (You may have a little extra sauce left over for another recipe!)

Turn your oven to broil.  Cook the spaghetti squash until the cheese bubbly and stly brown on top.  Be careful it will burn fast!  Let cool and serve!
