Cheesy Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Sun-dried Tomatoes

Spaghetti Squash Ingredients: 4 servings

  • 1 whole spaghetti squash (from Green BEAN Delivery)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (usually found in the produce section – pre-packaged in a bag)

  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese, extra for serving
  • Red pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F)
  • Zap squash whole in microwave for 30 seconds to soften
  • With a sharp knife, cut squash lengthwise, scrape to remove seeds with a spoon. (Note: it will be hard to cut – use those muscles, and BE CAREFUL)
  • Place squash face down on baking sheet. Cook for 45 minutes. Let cool.
  • Using a fork, scrape the inside of the squash to remove strands into a bowl. (looks similar to noodles).
  • In a large, deep skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, sauté 1 minute.
  • Add ¼ cup chicken broth, tomatoes, and broccoli. Saute 5 minutes.
  • Add chicken and remaining ¾ cup chicken broth and squash. Add ¼ cup cheese and stir.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover skillet and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve squash topped with a pinch of shredded parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes for a kick!
