Low-Carb Chicken Florentine

This lower-carb version of a favorite pasta dish is just as hearty and satisfying. Roasting spaghetti squash at a high temperature makes it tender and lightly caramelized in just 35 minutes. While it might take longer than microwaving, the buttery-toasty flavor payoff is worth the wait.

The major benefit of this dish is it incorporates two functional vegetables in spaghetti squash and spinach. Spaghetti squash provides fiber, while spinach contains antioxidants, iron and even a bit of protein. It’s always smart to mix up and combine your vegetable sources to ensure you get a wide variety of nutrients.
