Ingredients

  • 1 cooked spaghetti squash
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 pound Parmesan Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Cook the spaghetti squash and chicken beforehand. An easy option is to cook either or both in the Instant Pot.
  • Prep the spaghetti squash by pulling the squash out of the skin.
  • Shred the chicken.
  • To make the sauce, pour the heavy whipping cream into a large skillet or saucepan.
  • Stir constantly to avoid scorching, and allow the cream to come to a boil.
  • Slowly whisk the cheese into the simmering cream. The sauce will start to thicken.
  • At this point, whisk the salt and pepper into the sauce.
  • Use tongs to add spaghetti squash to your plate.
  • Add a handful of shredded chicken on top.
  • Finally, add Alfredo sauce to your liking.
  • Top it all off with a light sprinkling of parsley.
