Spaghetti Squash Bake – BBQ Chicken Recipe

I love making casseroles.  But the thing with casseroles is, they are usually tasty for the all the fatty buttery cheesy reasons that make them delicious.  They have a time and a place, especially for cheap meal prep for an entire week.

But, what if I were to say to you there are other ways to enjoy the idea of a casserole…

I present to you the Spaghetti Squash Bake!  Now for this bake, imagine that delicious casserole meeting up with all the flavors that make a BBQ Chicken Pizza delicious.  This might blow your mind, but you could enjoy both of those worlds, at the same time, and not feel carbo-loaded after.

Wondering how in the heck you roast a spaghetti squash, or how I prep to make this dish?

Cook your chicken – for an all around flavor – bbq the chicken breasts and then shred or chop them.  Layer on top of the squash, drizzle a good amount of bbq sauce and a layer of cheese.
