Spaghetti Squash with Chicken Marinara Sauce

I love easy recipes… so here it goes…

2 Chickenbreasts
1 Jar Marinara Sauce ( I use Central Market organic)
1 Spaghetthi Squash
Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, basil and oregano

Preheat oven at 350F.

Cut Spaghetti Squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Then put face down on a cookie sheet. I put foil on the sheet. Bake for 40 mins or until fork tender.

Sauce,

Heat about a tsp of olive oil, cut the chicken breast into half inch pieces and cook in the heated olive oil. Once cooked thru, add Marinara Sauce. Season with salt and peper and Basil and Oregano to your liking. Simmer for 15-20mins.

Serve with Parmesan Cheese.
This is low carb, low fat.

Eggplant Parmesan Strips Gluten Free

Ingridients:

1 eggplant, peeled and cut into strips about 2″long and 1/4″ wide
1 cup eggwhites
1.5 cups corn meal
3 tbsp Parmesan
Dried Basil, salt Pepper

Preheat oven 375F

put the eggwhites in a bowl and season with salt and pepper, in a second bowl mix cornmeal, parmesan and about 2 tsp of dried basil.
Take your egg plant and put them in the egg whites and then roll them in the cornmeal mix. Put on a cookie sheet that is lined with foil and some cooking spray.
Put in the oven for 10mins then turn them over and cook another 7mins. And voila, they are nice and cripsy on the outside and soft on the inside.
I heated up a jar of my favorite tomato sauce (garlic and basil from HEB) and served that with it.
As side dishes I made tomato cucumber salad and garden mix salad.
