Yum, yum, yum! I saw something similar to this on Pinterest a while back, but didn’t pin it…. so I kinda had to wing it when I finally decided to give this recipe a try.
Basically I just baked the spaghetti squash for a bit and then added all the yummy stuff on top and baked it a bit more. Not rocket science….. really, really yum though! Baking the squash with the sauce in it really added flavor to the squash.
Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Squash Boats
- 1 Spaghetti Squash (How to: HERE) – Only thing I did differently was that I roasted it right side up, like a boat, instead of upside down. Be sure to leave enough squash on the ends so that your ‘boat’ doesn’t leak!
- 1/2 Recipe OMG Alfredo Sauce (HERE)
- 1 – 2 tsp Garlic, minced
- 1 c. Chicken, shredded
- Parmesan & Mozzarella Cheese (I used about a 1/2 a cup…. more or less to your preference)
Slice both ends off the spaghetti squash (don’t slice off too much or your sauce will leak out of the ‘boat’) and scoop out the seeds. (You can save the seeds and plant them later!) Place both halves of the squash in a glass baking dish, right side up, and bake at 375° for 30 minutes.
Remove the squash from the oven and layer the garlic, chicken and mozzarella in the ‘boat’. Top with as much Alfredo as you like (or as much as your boat can hold!).. be generous, the squash will soak up some of the sauce. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and bake for another 25-30 minutes. Parmesan cheese should be bubbly and golden brown.
Transfer each squash boat to a plate and enjoy! Use your fork to scrape up the squash and mix with the chicken and sauce as you eat.
