Chicken Spaghetti- my different take on “regular spaghetti”! This is a family favorite meal, right here!
Ground beef or turkey spaghetti is good but here is just something even better about Chicken spaghetti.
Just adds that extra something!
Now this is made to be an S (for my Trim Healthy Folks) but you could keep the cheese light and make it an FP.
I usually sauté onion and garlic in this but you could add extra veggies or even spinach to fill it with lots of yumminess!
**NOTE: to keep this gluten free & lower carb you would need to use either zucchini noodles (using this machine right here… Spiralizer® aff link) or you could use spaghetti squash or even the NOT-SO-Naughty Noodles made my Trim Healthy Mama (which you can buy here at my aff store link )
Also, my sauce is more of a sweeter sauce… I use the THM sweeteners to give it that perfect taste. If you don’t like the sweeter spaghetti sauce, just add less of the sweetener. I do recommend that you add a little to keep the bitterness of the tomato paste to a minimum! You can purchase the sweeteners at the affiliate link above.
