I know this recipe may seem basic, but I think most of us need an easy healthy chicken Alfredo spaghetti squash recipe, am I right?

I am all about the quick weeknight meals, so go ahead and judge me for not using homemade sauce.

This recipe throws me back to my Olive Garden days when I was a server through grad school. I definitely made a few meals out of breadsticks and Alfredo sauce while trying to work a full day at the hospital and serve tables at night to keep myself out of debt.

Anyway, I tried to upgrade this classic American Italian dish by increasing the veggies and adding a lean protein. By adding the extra veggies, I get some volume and micronutrients, making it much more filling and satisfying.
