Spaghetti Squash & Zucchini Lasagna

Thai Pumpkin Coconut Soup
Pumpkin is a common ingredient in Thai cooking. Pie pumpkins are usually available in grocery stores during the fall months, but butternut squash makes a great alternative. The daring folks might like another chili pepper. For colour and added texture, sprinkle with sliced red chili pepper just before serving.
Sometimes the greatest dinners do not come from a recipe. Once you get the hang of cooking real food it is possible to take just about any real food ingredients and create a tasty meal. Here is one such non-recipe. It can be whipped up in no time by looking in the fridge to see what is lying around.
Use this casserole to fill up space on the plate normally occupied by a starch or grain.
Turkey Stuffed Acorn Squash
Acorn squash is quick and easy to prepare. Simply cut it in half, scoop out the soft pulp, put it face down in water and bake or microwave until soft. Once ready it makes a natural bowl that is perfect for a chili type filling. This recipe uses lean ground turkey, but ground beef, pork or lamb would work too.
