MY FRIENDS! This is everything. By everything, I mean my new favorite dinner. Ever. And that will hold true until my next new favorite dinner [as per usual]. But that’s beside the point! The point is: these babies are DELICIOUS. Like, I wanted to eat dinner soooo slowly so that I could savor every bite. I know, I know, crazy lady status [#alldayerrday].
To be honest, I had no idea how they’d turn out… but wow, they did not disappoint. I mean, broccoli and cheddar would never let us down, right? And honestly that’s just the kind of commitment I look for in life… so let’s just say I’ll be making this weekly. At least.
Also, here’s a real curve ball for you: one of my favorite soups of all time is broccoli and cheddar [And I’m kind of a self-proclaimed soup freak, so I know what I’m talking about here…], so it’s probably no wonder I’m madly obsessed these spaghetti squash boats. I mean, it is total. comfort. food. And you don’t even need to feel guilty about this! Spaghetti squash literally has so few calories, and so what there’s cheese? Cheese is like protein… or something. Right? Good.
So can we talk about why this is so amazing? Pretty much there’s this luscious cheddar cheese sauce [which, brb, going to drown in it now], and you just sorta toss the spaghetti squash, steamed broccoli, and shredded chicken in this ooey gooey cheese sauce. Place all of the deliciousness in little gratin dishes [or one big dish], and that’s right, you guessed it: top these puppies with more cheddar cheese. Throw them underneath the broiler from a couple of minutes until the cheese turns golden brown and begins to bubble…. and voila. Heaven in a bowl.
