Looking for a low calorie dinner? This easy skillet ground turkey and spaghetti squash green curry is the perfect option. With only 234 calories and 5 PointsPlus® per serving; it is healthy, low carb, and comes together in under 20 minutes. Most importantly, it is packed with flavor from the combination of green curry paste, coconut milk, ginger, and lime. Personally I like to pack in the curry flavor using about 4 tablespoons in the recipe but you can adjust to make it as spicy as you like. Usually I make some brown rice to serve on the side for the bigger eaters in the family, but I am content with this recipe all on its own.
