Chicken, Spinach, Spaghetti Squash Marinara Casserole
This casserole is one of my go to favorites for meal that is traditional, clean, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and delicious. I’ve done several variations using spaghetti squash as my base for the casserole and change up the veggies and protein sources to make something new each time. This one is full of non-starchy carbs from spinach, spaghetti squash, carrots and onions. Chicken from my local farmers market is actually a stewing hen and is full of flavor. I added Applegate Farms turkey bacon as an experiment and it turned out fantastic.
This 1 dish meal is full of nutrient dense whole foods that will leave you feeling satisfied and full of sustained energy. The eggs are pastured from a friend who has her own laying hens and I was lucky enough to grab several dozen this week. I love that this dish gets a bit crispy on top and the addition of the egg makes it seem like it has cheese in it- when it doesn’t. And it stores beautifully. You can freeze left overs or put it in serving sizes to take to work for lunch the next day. This is truly one of my favorite dishes to eat from left overs. It makes a 9 x 13 pan that serves the whole family. If you are trying to eat clean and avoid gluten, dairy, soy or nuts its got you covered and is compliant with the RESTART program and Whole 30 so enjoy!
