Baked Chicken Fettuccini

Today has been by far the laziest Sunday. Our dinner plans got exed last night when Brent got home and wasn’t feeling good. So I spent the night watching tebow then tiaras. The Miss America Pageant was the highlight of the night.. I wonder how many of them were wearing bump its? Kudos to Miss Wisconsin. She is legit. Although I recommend waterproof mascara from here on out.

This morning, Brent still wasn’t feeling well, so we have been hibernating all day. In fact I am still in my comfies. In fact, now that I think about it.. I have been in my comfies since noon yesterday.. I should get out more?


By dinner time Brents appetite came back and I had a spaghetti squash that I had to use. I didn’t have any tomato sauce for marinara but after digging around in the pantry I discovered a alfredo packet.

Healthy Chicken Alfredo? Its Sunday.. lets add even more cheese and call it a casserole. Cool?

3. In another skillet add 1 T. olive oil, onion, pepper and mushrooms till soft then add spinach and cover with lid.


4. Prepare sauce as directed or I just used skim milk and mozzarella cheese.


5 add veggies and chicken to sauce


6. Scrape out Spaghetti squash into large baking pan.


7. Pour Sauce onto squash and mix well.
