Spaghetti Squash Pesto Chicken and Tomatoes

Hey Guys! I have been dying to try my very first recipe using spaghetti squash. Coming from an Italian background spaghetti is defiantly no stranger to me, neither is gluten. I am always trying to find new ways to make delicious alternatives that are still as tasty as my traditional Italian meals without the traditional Italian meal calories. I am sure you can all agree with me! This recipe is super easy as well and doesn’t take a lot of time or ingredients.


Ever feel like when you revert away from gluten or try a healthy alternative it lacks taste? well this spaghetti squash recipe is not shy of flavour at all. Which is amazing because one I finished cooking and it was time for tasting (which is my favourite part of cooking) I could not put the fork down! Needless to say it was a hit and not the last time I will be trying out this recipe.
