Spaghetti Squash with Chicken Parmesan

March 8, 2013


Author Notes: Here is my version of this classic comfort food! Its grain-free and super easy to make for a quick dinner. Its light and will leave you satisfied but never stuffed! I promise you cannot taste even a hint of almond flour. I like to serve it on a bed of spaghetti squash with pesto. You could also serve it with roasted sweet potatoes if you can’t find spaghetti squash in season.Caroline Potter
