Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash large
  • 1 onion small, diced
  • 2 carrots medium, diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1 pound chicken cooked, shredded
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup Homemade Ranch Dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese low-fat, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup green onion chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Slice your spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds, then spray the cut side of the squash with a little olive oil cooking spray and place cut side down on the baking pan.
  • Roast spaghetti squash for 30-45 minutes or until it is tender.
  • While the squash is cooking, sauté the onion, celery, and carrots until softened and mostly cooked through.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sauteed vegetables, chicken, hot sauce, ranch dressing, garlic powder, salt, pepper, eggs, and cheese.
  • Once the squash is cooked through, allow to cool slightly then use a fork to scrape the insides into your chicken mixture, making sure not to tear the skins.
  • Make sure that the spaghetti squash is well incorporated with the other ingredients, then divide the mixture between the spaghetti squash halves.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with the green onions and additional ranch or hot sauce if desired.
