Ingredients:

Winter squash baked in a pan with a wooden spoon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium skillet, cook ground turkey in water for 5 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink; drain.
  3. In a medium microwave-safe dish, cover squash with a damp paper towel. Cook on high power for 3-5 minutes or until tender.
  4. Add turkey, rice, diced tomatoes with juice, salt, and Provolone cheese to squash; toss to combine.
  5. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. Top with Parmesan cheese; bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.

Tip:

Rice mixture is ideal for stuffing bell peppers. Simply cut the pepper in half, remove core, and stuff each half with 1/2-cup of rice mixture. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until pepper is tender.
