Spaghetti Squash “Pasta” Recipe Added to the Dinner Page!

Time to share another awesome recipe! I tried this one last night and loved it. It was delicious and super healthy. It’s a spaghetti squash pasta with shrimp (original recipe uses chicken instead), sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, and peas. The great thing about this dish is that you can season it and add any vegetables you want to it to make it taste just how you like! :) Check it out below or visit my Recipes – Dinner Options page!

Prep time: 1 hour          Cook time: 15 mins           Total time: 1 hour 15 mins
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 whole Spaghetti Squash
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth, Divided Use
  • ⅓ cups Sun-dried Tomatoes, Chopped
  • 2 cups Broccoli Florets
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas
  • 2 whole Chicken Breasts, Grilled And Sliced
  • ¼ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 pinch Salt/pepper To Taste
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F).
2. With a sharp knife, cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scrape/remove seeds with a spoon.
3. Place squash halves cut side down on a baking sheet: bake for 45 minutes.
4. When the squash has about 15 minutes left in the oven, start to prepare the rest of the dish (steps 5-8) so that your squash “noodles” are still hot when you serve them.
5. In a large, deep skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic. Saute 1 minute.
6. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth, sundried tomatoes, and broccoli and saute 5 minutes.
7. Add peas, grilled chicken (I used shrimp instead), and remaining 3/4 cup of chicken broth. Shake about 1/4 cup parmesan cheese into mixture (just enough to thicken the chicken broth).
8. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover skillet and simmer for about 3 minutes.
9. Remove squash from oven after 45 minutes is up. Let squash cool.
10. Using a fork, scrape the inside of the squash with the tines to remove strands.
9. Serve on top of the squash strands with fresh shaved parmesan cheese and enjoy! :)
