Due to food allergies (gluten and nuts), I often substitute one item for another. A great substitute for pasta is spaghetti squash. I love alfredo sauce and so, I made a delicious dish with spagehtti squash and chicken breast. Hubby loved it!
1 large spaghetti squash
thick chicken breasts
half and half
parmigiano reggiano cheese
Grill chicken cutlets. I used my George Forman Grill but you can do it on the barbecue or on top of the stove. Season cutlets with some garlic powder.
Cut holes in spaghetti squash as demonstrated in video. Cook in microwave 6 minutes. If squash is soft enough after 6 minutes, cut it in half, if not, put back into microwave for another 5 minutes. When squash is soft, cut it in half and place in plate inside down. Cook in microwave until inside is soft.
Melt butter in pot. Add in half and half and cheese. Cook until hot on medium heat and let cheese melt.
Cut grilled chicken into bite sized pieces. Remove seeds from spaghetti squash. Scrape spaghetti squash into a bowl. Add chicken to squash and top with alfredo sauce. Stir well. Serve topped with cheese.
