Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
- 1 medium sized acorn squash
- 1 pound of organic ground turkey
- 10 orange grape tomatoes (cut in half)

- 1 cup broccoli
- 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa

- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
- Low fat mozarella cheese (optional)
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2) Cut acorn squash in half and scoop out seeds. ( Use a sharp knife as cutting this can be challenging)
