This past week I went to visit a dear friend and her family. Between her food sensitivities and my adherence to the Specific Carbs Diet, we had an adventure figuring out what to eat for the week! One of my favorite meals of the week was Spaghetti squash with basil pesto, sauteed onion, tomatoes and mushroom, 21 Seasoning chicken and harvati cheese. Yum! And fairly simple.
Cook the spaghetti squash for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 400. Either cut it in half before and seed or cook it whole. It will take a little longer if you cook it whole. We added a sandwich bag of homemade basil pesto (about 3/4 cup). We cut up a tomato, onion and 1/2 cup of mushrooms and sauteed in olive oil for about 3-5 minutes. We seasoned the chicken breast with Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute and baked for about 35 minutes at 375. We served it warm with harvati cheese grated on top.
Stay tune for Jamaican Spiced Meatloaf and kidney beans!
