Ingredients

1 spaghetti squash (about 4.5 lbs.)

1 lb. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper

4 cups chopped kale

3 tbsp. finely chopped pouched sun-dried tomatoes

2 tsp. chopped garlic

2 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

6 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Microwave squash for 3 - 4 minutes, until soft enough to cut. Halve lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds.

Fill a large baking pan with 1/2 inch water and place squash halves in the pan, cut sides down. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes.

While squash cools, bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Season chicken with pepper and 1/8 tsp. salt, and add to the skillet. Cook and stir until chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer chicken to a large bowl, and cover to keep warm.

Use a fork to scrape out squash strands. Place in a strainer to drain excess moisture. Blot dry, if needed. Transfer 5 cups to a large bowl, and cover to keep warm. Reserve any extra squash for another time.

Clean skillet. Re-spray and bring to medium-high heat. Add kale, sun-dried tomatoes, and garlic. Add 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook until kale is tender, about 5 minutes.

Remove lid, and reduce heat to low. Add Parm-style topping and cheese wedges, breaking the cheese wedges into pieces. Add chicken and remaining 1/8 tsp. salt. Cook and stir until cheese has melted and coated veggies and chicken, about 3 minutes.

Add cheesy chicken and veggies to the spaghetti squash, mix well, and serve!
