That’s Why it is called Spaghetti Squash!

The first time I heard spaghetti squash, I thought the squash must go particularly well with spaghetti.  Little did I know that when the squash is cooked, the flesh actually turns into spaghetti itself.  It was pretty amazing and magical!  The squash tastes really sweet by itself and the texture is just wonderful!

This is a very light and healthy recipe.  The original was vegetarian, but I like it so much I had to make it into a balanced meal so that Huan would eat it.  It is perfect for people who are on a protein diet.  When I finished cooking this meal, I couldn’t help but think of my wonderful friend, Kari.  She’s like Huan who loves meat and eats very little carbs. So Kari!   This one is for you!  Thank you for helping me proof read everything on this site!  I couldn’t have done it without you!

Cooking Notes:

  • This meal can be converted into a vegetarian meal, just cut out the chicken.
  • If your kids love pasta as much as mine, just replace the spaghetti squash with a side cooked pasta.
  • Chicken could be pre-cooked and shredded the night before to save time.
