Spicy Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Skillet

Recipe by Johnney

This spicy sauce, which makes good use of leftover chicken or turkey, is also great on true pastas, as well as the spaghetti squash suggested here. For a vegetarian version, simply eliminate the meat, or if you want a substitute, use extra firm tofu.

Yummmm!!! I'm excited to find another great spaghetti squash recipe! I sauteed a (quartered & sliced) zucchini along with the onions & garlic, added 1/2 tsp. salt, and used only 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes. Easy, healthy, and delicious! Thanks, Johnney!
