4 servings

Serving size:
2 squash halves plus 2 tablespoons sauce per serving

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut squash in halves lengthwise. Scrape out inner pulp and seeds leaving a 1/2-inch shell. Chop pulp and seeds; set aside.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add turkey and cinnamon. Cook, stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink. Transfer to plate.

Return skillet to medium-high heat; coat again with nonstick cooking spray. Add onions and reserved chopped squash. Coat with cooking spray. Cook 4 minutes or until squash is tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in turkey mixture, pine nuts, sugar, cumin, salt, and red pepper. Mix well.

Arrange squash halves, cut-side up, in 13×9-inch baking pan. Spoon turkey mixture in equal amounts into each squash half. Cover with foil. Bake 30 to 45 minutes or until squash is tender.

Combine yogurt and mint in small bowl and refrigerate. Serve squash with yogurt sauce.
