Colorful entree from TOH. I left out the artichokes because I'm not to fond of them

Wonderful! Made as directed, but without the olives as we don't care for them. We'll be making this recipe again! Thanks for posting.
We really love this. I have now fixed it multiple times and have found that the ingredient quantities are quite flexible, although I always double the chicken to increase the protein count. One time we were short on the spaghetti squash and that was sad; better more than less we decided. I also have fixed the squash a day ahead and reheated it at serving time.
