So rich, creamy and delicious! After mixing the ingredients I like to return it back to the squash and cook it inside so it brings out even more flavors. We like to make the dish at least once a month, especially during the summer months where we have a lot of squash that is growing in our garden. If you make any of our recipes, please do post a photo of your dish and use the hashtag #OhDip we would love to see what everyone is doing with our recipes.

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash halved and baked at 400F 40 minutes until tender
  • 1/2 lb chicken breasts cut into 1-in cubes
  • 1 medium onion finely diced

  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
