Recipe Card

For the Mashed Spaghetti Squash


  • 1 spaghetti squash, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

For the Chicken


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

For the Green Beans


  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375℉ and line a pan with parchment paper. Place the spaghetti squash halves onto the pan, upside down, and place in the oven. Roast for 40-60 minutes or until fork tender. Scoop the cooked spaghetti squash into a blender or food processor. Add parmesan, butter and cracked black pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, season the chicken on each side with salt and pepper and drizzle chicken with maple syrup. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken into the hot pan and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until completely cooked through.

  • Step 3

    To prepare the green beans, begin with toasting the almonds in a hot pan on the stove over medium heat. Mix and toast for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Meanwhile, blanch and shock your trimmed green beans, then add then to the same pan as the almonds and sauté for about 2 minutes, or until warm.

  • Step 4

    Serve yourself chicken, mashed spaghetti squash, and green beans!
