This Easy Chicken Pesto Stuffed Spaghetti Squash is taken simple healthy meal options to a whole new level. It is stuffed with chicken, pesto,veggies and melty cheese for a healthy meal.
I am so loving squash right now! You are able to flavor them so many ways it is like the perfect veggie! I love pasta but hate the guilt that is attached with it (seriouly who can only eat half of a cup). In comes spaghetti squash, it is my way to get that amazing pasta flavor without the guilt.
This easy chicken pesto stuffed spaghetti squash is so delicious and is freezer friendly. I tested it and froze 3 containers and reheated them for lunch later in the week and they turned out perfect! I just scooped the filling and the spaghetti squash out of the ‘shell’ and into the dishes, cooled, covered, and into the freezer. I did let them thaw completely overnight in the fridge before reheating them. I love having my freezer full of quick healthy meal options, it make my life a teeny bit easier. I really hope you get a chance to try this wonderfull recipe. So. Freakin. Tasty.
