My husband walked into the kitchen and asked, “what’s for dinner?” I replied, “chicken spaghetti.” He about fell over thinking this Califonia girl was about to make his favorite Southern dish. Then he took one look at everything and was really confused. I tried explaining that we were literally having chicken and spaghetti SQUASH!!!!!
The end result, delicious, light, healthy and very flavorful! Yes, he loved it!!!!

Add half of your marinara and veggies on top of the squash, then the chicken, and the rest of the marinara. Place your cheese on top and stick it in the oven long enough to melt the cheese.
