Chicken Squash Spaghetti

The Best Chicken Squash Spaghetti by ilonaspassion.com

I have a new obsession lately.. its squash spaghetti. Long time ago every time when I was in store I saw this vegetable but I’ve never managed to buy it. After reading couple clean eating posts on other blogs I thought how good can squash spaghetti be.

I’ve decide to give it a try. I thought “no way” that this yellow vegetable can be better than pasta. I was thinking nothing will substitute pasta. I’m not madly in love in any kind of pasta. However, if I’m thinking about spaghetti … pasta comes to my mind. Anyway one day I went to the store and I bought squash spaghetti. I researched some recipes how to bake it and then I got an idea.

It’s very simple to prepare healthy dinner. First I baked spaghetti squash. In the meantime I prepared ground chicken and sauce. When I finally tried squash spaghetti I was amazed how good it is. I already knew that it’s not my last time eating this large yellow vegetable. I will definitely come back to spaghetti squash. So now I am already planning new recipes in my head.

Squash spaghetti doesn’t have to substitute only pasta. It can be stuffed with many other ingredients,  different types of meat or even with Parmesan Broccoli Baked Fish.  It can also be prepared totally vegetarian. The possibilities are endless.

I just know that I found new type of vegetable that I totally adore:)

  1. Hi Ilona,
    I am new to your blog and it’s beautiful. You’re doing such an amazing job with your posts! Thank you for all of your hard work! To answer your question: I tried once making the spaghetti squash in oven and served it with homemade red spaghetti sauce. In my humbled opinion, It was good, but I can’t imaging completely substituting it for good brand pasta. When I fixed it for my family for dinner, they said that to eat it once thats ok, but completely eliminating good pasta is not an option for our family. I am glad that you’re excited and really like it, because that is what really matters is that you like it. I can only imagine how more nutritious the squash spaghetti is instead of pasta. Again, keep up your amazing work! I am looking forward to become your loyal visitor. -Tanya

    1. I agree with you … for our family it’s not an option to eliminate the pasta either. I think balance in carbs/fats/protein is the most important. Honestly, This was my first time I tried squash spaghetti. Thank you Tanya for your sweet comments:)
