Chicken Parmesan Meatballs and Spaghetti Squash

Well Dined | Chicken Parmesan Meatballs and Spaghetti Squash

Chicken Parmesan without the guilt?  I saw a really yummy looking recipe for Chicken Parmesan Meatballs that I wanted to try, but didn't want to eat all the carbs involved in pasta.  I had also been seeing cheesy spaghetti squash casseroles that looked really good, so I had the idea to combine them.

Ground chicken, onion, Parmesan, parsley, lemon zest, breadcrumbs, garlic, and egg are combined to make the meatballs, which are basted with tomato sauce and cooked in the oven.

Spaghetti squash goes into a casserole dish (I cook mine in the microwave).  This is from two medium squashes.

Place the cooked meatballs on top, then the tomato sauce.  I forgot to season the squash, oops!  So I added more salt and pepper here.
