First order of business: this stuffed spaghetti squash.

I know some of you loathe spaghetti squash and I’ve kept my distance from it because I know a lot of people don’t like it as much as I do, but I actually made something worth trying and I promise it may or may not change your mind about the whole spaghetti squash thing. How’s that for a promise?

You bake the whole thing until it’s mostly tender, then you add in chicken, bacon, homemade alfredo sauce and cheese. Bake it some more until completely tender and mix it together to separate the cooked spaghetti squash, add in a little more alfredo sauce and cheese and broil.

It does take some time to bake, but besides that it’s a very easy recipe to make.

I’d recommend adding in as much bacon in as humanly possible. You’re welcome for that little tip 🙂

Have a great Monday!

Chicken & Bacon Alfredo Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

This Chicken Bacon Alfredo Stuffed Spaghetti Squash recipe is SO good. It includes chicken, bacon, alfredo and cheese!!! Why wouldn't you try this out?
servings 2 servings
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 leftover grilled chicken breast* diced
  • 6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled**
  • 1 1/2 cups jarred alfredo sauce***
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • Mrs. Dash seasoning for garnish optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • With a very sharp knife, carefully slice spaghetti squash in half. Scoop out seeds into the garbage and place onto baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 30-40 minutes or until fork can pierce the flesh and start to shred.
  • Divide chicken, bacon, 1 cup of alfredo sauce, and half of the cheeses {1/4 cup each mozzarella and parmesan} between the two spaghetti squash cavities. Bake another 10-15 minutes to thoroughly cook the squash.
  • Carefully mix the squash with the fillings, pulling the squash away from the sides. Spoon more alfredo sauce over the top {see notes below} with remaining cheeses and broil 1-2 minutes until melted and bubbly. Serve hot.
  • *I love using Mrs. Dash chicken seasoning on my chicken. If you don't have leftover chicken from a previous dinner, just dice up a chicken breast and sautee in a little olive oil, salt and Mrs. Dash Chicken seasoning.
  • **I used 6 slices which is a totally fine amount, but for all you bacon lovers out there, feel free to add more!!
  • ***Use a good alfredo sauce you like. You can do a homemade one, or store bought. I used one from Trader Joes. Also, the 1 1/2 cup increment was how much I used. It was a little shy of the whole jar. Looking back, I probably should have used the whole jar. This amount will change depending on how large your spaghetti squash is and your preferred sauce-to-goodies ratio.

    This was a great recipe! Wondering if it would freeze good? Local farmer has spaghetti squash and I would like to make several to freeze. Has anyone tried freezing it,?

    I am a pasta-natic (translation: pasta fanatic). It’s bad. Like, reaaaally bad. I could have pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner if my belly allowed it and didn’t insist on expanding as each quarantine week goes by. Particularly the white sauced pasta dishes are enough to make me move mountains just to get my hands on. Though skeptical of this recipe (“how could the pasta just be REPLACED like that?! The gall!), I decided to give it a try. And BOY was I glad I did! While it satisfies all my white sauced desires, it simultaneously tricks me into thinking I’m eating all the fantastic carbs involved in pasta while, in reality, feeds me a healthy hearty vegetable. Served alongside a ceasar salad and garlic bread (gotta get that “carb fix” from somewhere…), this meal had me giddy.
