Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked spaghetti squash (approximately 1 small squash)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ cup all-natural marinara sauce
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 8 oz cooked chicken breast, sliced
  • ¼ medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups fresh arugula

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat with spray. Set aside.
  2. Using a clean kitchen towel or paper towels, squeeze as much water as possible from spaghetti squash and place it in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add egg, Parmesan cheese, and oregano to squash. Mix well.
  4. Place the squash mixture in the center of the prepared baking sheet; use damp hands to press into a thin circular shape, about ¼-inch thick and 10 inches across. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the top is dry and edges begin to brown. Remove from the oven.
  5. Spread the marinara sauce in an even layer on baked crust; top evenly with mozzarella cheese, chicken, and onion. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the onion softens slightly and the cheese melts.
