Broccoli & Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Squash
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.Advertisement
Place squash halves, cut-side down, in a microwave-safe dish. Add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave on High until the squash is tender, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place squash halves, cut-side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven until the squash is tender, 40 to 50 minutes.) When cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the squash flesh from the shells into a medium bowl. Place the squash shells, cut-side up, on a rimmed baking sheet.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, broccoli and salt; cook, stirring, until the chicken is cooked through and the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Whisk milk, Parmesan, cornstarch and pepper together in a measuring cup. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes more. Stir in the squash flesh. Fill the squash shells with the chicken mixture. Top with mozzarella. Bake until heated through and cheese has melted, 12 to 15 minutes.
