Butter Chicken Spaghetti Squash Boats

Who am I to talk about traditional Indian dishes but oh, I will go there as I did before with slow cooker chicken tikka masala and crock pot butter chicken. Prepare to be amazed. If my Ukrainian grandma could make a chicken curry with sour cream, onions and curry powder back in the 90s, why can’t I make some butter chicken and spaghetti squash pretending squash is pasta?! Haha, let’s be clear spaghetti squash doesn’t replace spaghetti but tastes very good. By the way, grandma’s curry was DELISH!…

Spaghetti Squash Quiche with Vegetables

There is everything delicious about the balsamic veggies filling and nothing traditional about the crust of this spaghetti squash quiche. But I realize my entire life is far from “traditions” of the locals. Let me tell you how I see today’s North American everyday life through my Eastern European eyes. Briefly. Countertops are washed with Lysol and windows with Windex. Clothes is washed in Tide, with Downy and then dried with Bounce. Becel is butter. Scents are plugged in houses and cars. Bathrooms contain air freshener. Toilet paper is of…

Personally, between spaghetti squash mac and cheese, tex mex leftover turkey spaghetti squash skillet and this baked spaghetti squash casserole I made at least twice each in the past month, I think I’m “squashed out” until after Christmas. But this baked spaghetti squash casserole was GOOD! In case you are still planning a Thanksgiving menu, this healthy and clean bake should go…

Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese

This Fall I have 2 addictions: spaghetti squash and my blue dutch oven. I keep buying spaghetti squash every week, roasting it in the oven and then throwing into this pot waiting for magic to happen…or not. Feeling like a mad scientist is the most satisfactory part of cooking for me. I honestly can’t wrap my head around the fact some people do not like to cook. But I get it – that is like I can’t stand anything to do with horses. So, fair enough. So far,…

Tex Mex Leftover Turkey Spaghetti Squash

Do you know that Thanksgiving in Canada happens mid-October?! I always wonder, if you are American how it feels to eat turkey end of November and then a month later?! Does it still feel exciting?! We always can’t wait for a Thanksgiving turkey and then Christmas come…we are still pumped to spend $80 on turkey. Yes! That is how much I paid for my special, local and free range bird this year. My hand was shaking as I was passing my debit card to a cashier and I…

Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Squash Boats

Spaghetti squash boats with chicken in creamy Alfredo sauce is comfort food made lighter by replacing traditional pasta with tender spaghetti squash and heavy cream with not less creamy but so much healthier Greek yogurt. Without sacrificing the flavour of course – garlic and freshly grated Parmesan cheese add so much flavour to the sauce. I haven’t had Alfredo sauce for years. My blogger friend Alex from Canuck Cuisine once mentioned to add cornstarch to Greek yogurt to prevent it from curdling. We were talking about my Crock…

Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Spaghetti squash mixed with organic cream of mushroom soup, tomato sauce, cheese and tender turkey pieces, then topped with crunchy Panko breadcrumb topping and baked until bubbly and golden. This spaghetti squash casserole was SO delicious, comforting and at same time guilt free. After trying spaghetti squash quiche with kale and mushrooms, I have experimented with  a few casseroles using spaghetti squash instead of traditional pasta (see vegetarian baked spaghetti squash casserole).

Thai Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bowl Recipe

  Lean chicken, crunchy veggies, toasted cashews, fresh cilantro tossed with lime juice, fish sauce and tamari. I love Thai food but haven’t had it in a while because, let’s say, it isn’t light. Lately, we have been taking boys to the pool on Fridays (and more) and after going out for a dinner. We always end up at a sushi restaurant because it’s easy to eat clean there. Last time, boys wanted Thai. We ended up at the Japanese restaurant again (guess who insisted?!) but I made…

It can easily replace pasta in a casserole (spaghetti squash casserole), make a low carb “noodle” boat (spaghetti squash boats Tex Mex) and now form a crust in this meaty and delicious gluten free spaghetti squash quiche.
