Getting back to Healthy Eating: Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Hey Everybody! As I mentioned in a previous entry, Anne and I strive to live healthy lifestyles. We work out daily and eat clean 90% of the time. Of course you have to have balance in your life and to me that means to not be too hard on yourself or too strict about things. Life is to be enjoyed! So basically, if you want the donut…eat the donut, just don’t eat 12 donuts. đŸ™‚ As we get back in to our normal routine after the holiday weekend, Anne and I have went back to clean eating. We recently made Spaghetti Squash with chicken and tomato sauce.

SpaghettiSquash

It is a really easy dish to make and you will be surprised how much Spaghetti Squash taste like Spaghetti! Basically, this is what you need:

  • One Spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise and the seeds scooped out
  • Jar of organic tomato sauce (you will only need to use about half the jar)
  • Diced green pepper
  • Diced white onion
  • Package of Boneless/Skinless Chicken Tenderloins

Put both halves of the Spaghetti Squash cut side down in to a glass casserole dish. Place in the oven on 375 for 40-45 minutes. While this is cooking, dice your chicken and place in a skillet on medium heat. Once the chicken is cooked, throw in your diced green pepper and onion and  pour your tomato sauce over it and let it simmer. When your squash is ready, take it out of the oven, turn each piece cut side up and take fork and shred the sides of the squash. It will come apart very easily, the sides should be soft and easy to pull apart with a fork. Once you have shredded all your squash and placed on a plate, pour your chicken and tomato sauce over it, top with shredded Parmesan and enjoy!
