Pesto Chicken Spaghetti Squash

Pesto Chicken Spaghetti Squash
I love when an idea comes around without a ton of pre-thought. I had these gigantic squash and they're so good with just marinara sauce as you know but I also had roasted chicken thighs that I wanted to incorporate.  This was a day I wanted warm and homey, not spicy and tangy. Normally I make my own pesto but discovered they carry a handy pre-packaged version at my corner store, so I tossed the squash, added lemons and fresh basil, peas and then topped with the chicken and Parmesan. Such an excellent way to use a slight bit of cheese with a lot of punch. Also a bonus, it's a full meal in it's own container.
One half serves two and then some, so you can scoop out the portions table-side.  Be sure to get all of those delightful strands because yes, they are that good.
This one surprised me. A great similar recipe
