Oh right, I was supposed to tell you what you can make with turkey leftovers. Oops. Well, the dish I made was turkey in an onion, pine nut, and three-cheese sauce over spaghetti squash.
First, I threw a spaghetti squash in the oven about 45 mins before I began to prepare the rest of the meal. Then I toasted some pine nuts alongside the squash when it was nearly time to take it out. Be careful with pine nuts, they go from perfectly toasted to burnt very easily. Then I sautéed some onions in coconut oil, added some garlic, and then the turkey, which I had torn into bite-sized pieces. I made the cheese sauce from a blend of mozzarella, parmesan, and asiago cheeses. I melted them in a little chicken broth and some unsweetened coconut milk and then poured it over the turkey/onion sauté. Then I took the squash I baked and portioned it on the plate, and laid the turkey on the top. Then I grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (my favorite cheese EVERRR) to finish it off. OK, so that’s four cheeses, but oh well, four times as good. Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone!
