Spaghetti Squash Boats

Since I had my sweet little baby I've been looking for ideas for healthy meals since I'm back on Weight Watchers (and I'm happy to say I've already gotten back to my pre-baby weight!!). The skinnytaste blog is great and she posts WW points + values which is awesome.

I got the idea for these from her recipe. They turned out fantastic and I'll definitely be making these again!

1 medium sized spaghetti squash
2 chicken breasts (cut into chunks and cooked)
oregano/salt/pepper for taste
2 cups Light shredded mozza cheese
2 cups marinara sauce

Start by cutting a slice into the spaghetti squash (this is so it doesn't explode when you microwave it). Pop it into the microwave for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Put the halves onto a cookie sheet cut side up. Top each half with the chicken breasts, seasonings, 1 cup of marinara each followed by 1 cup each of cheese.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, once they're done cooking let them cool for about 5 minutes and you're done! Eat right out of the squash, the inside is like noodles only much healthier.
