Yields6 servings

Cooking Vessel Size2.5-quart or 9 x 9-inch baking dish

Ingredients

  • 1 (3-pound) spaghetti squash
  • 1 cup cubed zucchini (1 small zucchini)
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup cubed green bell pepper
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatotes, well drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spray a 2.5-quart (9 x 9-inch) baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and place cut-side down on the bake sheet (you will remove the seeds later). Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until squash is cooked but not “mushy”. Remove squash halves to work surface and use a spoon to remove and discard seeds.  Use a fork to scrape the pulp into strands and transfer to a large bowl.
    NOTE: Spaghetti squash can also be cut in half and placed into a steaming basket over simmering water for 40 to 45 minutes to cook.  Drain very well and remove seeds as above before combining with the other ingredients.

  3. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F. 

  4. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl with the spaghetti squash and stir to combine. Use a slotted spoon to place the squash mixture into the prepared bake dish, leaving behind any accumulated liquids, and bake 30 minutes.
