Ingredients
Instructions
  1. place the spaghetti squash in the microwave for about 6 minutes or so. Slice the spaghetti squash down the center. Discard the seeds that are in the inside. Drizzle some olive oil and shake some salt and pepper on it. Place the squash with the inside portion face down on the baking sheet. For easy cleanup place a piece of parchment paper down on the baking sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes or until you can poke a fork through the outside.
  2. In the meantime, place some olive oil in a skillet. Place the chicken breasts in a skillet over medium heat. Salt and pepper the chicken breasts on each side. You are going to cook the chicken about 6 minutes on each side. It is not terribly imperative that you cook the chicken all the way through.
  3. Once the chicken is done go ahead and place it to the side and let cool a bit. Once cooled, cut the chicken into chunks. Place in a bowl.
  4. Slice up the mushrooms and then cut up the broccoli into small pieces and place it in the bowl with the chicken.
  5. Pour the prepared marinara sauce into the bowl with the chicken.
  6. Add in the italian seasoning. Blend well.
  7. By this time the spaghetti squash should be done. Take it out of the oven, if you used it, and let cool. Maybe about 5 minutes or so. Use a fork and scoop out the insides and place in a mid size baking dish.
  8. If you are going to use ricotta and mozzarella cheese, get that out.
  9. You should already have the spaghetti squash in the baking dish. Now place a layer of ricotta and mozzarella cheese. Now place the chicken and marinara sauce mixture on top of the cheese layer. On top of the chicken, place another layer of mozzarella cheese.
  10. Cover and bake for about 35 minutes. You want the chicken to finish cooking though as well as melt all of that yummy cheese. If you are not using cheese, I would cut the cook time down by about 5 minutes or so.
Recipe Notes

Please noter: If you want to be “Strict Paleo” and not use cheese you can always leave it out or use a substitute with a nut cheese. I know there are a bunch of different ones out there.
