Pasta-Free Chicken Alfredo

Pasta-Free Chicken Alfredo ~ Our Cozy Den This is a GREAT recipe for anyone who has to eat gluten-free, low-carb, or people who have PCOS like me!

This specific recipe is for Chicken Alfredo, but you can read the directions for how to prepare the spaghetti squash and use that to replace any pasta in any recipe. Sometimes I use it for mac & cheese, spaghetti, chicken parmesan, and lots more.

Ingredients:

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • broccoli (optional)
  • chicken, cooked
  • alfredo sauce
  • mozzarella cheese

(I don’t have specific amounts listed, because the amount of broccoli, chicken, alfredo sauce, and cheese you use are up to you, based on your personal preference!)

Instructions:

First, cut your spaghetti squash into rings, about 1.5″ wide.

Then, take out the seeds, and arrange them on cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees, until the edges start to turn golden brown. (This takes about 30 minutes in my oven.)

Use a fork to separate the squash into “noodles” and dump into a big bowl.

In the bowl, add alfredo sauce and steamed broccoli. Stir it up.

In a sprayed 13×9 baking dish, layer the noodles /sauce/ broccoli on the bottom, cooked chicken next (I like mine breaded, you can bread it with coconut flour to keep it GF), and then mozzarella cheese on top. Bake again at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, just long enough to make it all melty.

This recipe is PACKED with veggies & nutrients, and it tastes like delicious Italian comfort food. Hope this helps you to get your kids (or husband) to eat a little healthier and cut out some of that dreaded processed flour! It also freezes really well, so I take extra servings, and pop them in the freezer for a quick microwavable meal on those nights I don’t have time to cook.
Enjoy!
