Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Spinach
Beau Gustafson

Grand Prize: Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Mushrooms and Spinach

Our grand prize winner submitted a variation of one of her favorite pasta recipes from her repertoire. She thought the texture of roasted spaghetti squash would be a nice stand-in for ubiquitous pasta, and we agree. Her results were at once satisfying, comforting, and creative.

"I found the dish to be simple enough for a quick weeknight family meal, but also elegant enough with the right kind of accompaniments to be used for entertaining friends."  ―Claudia Krempp, Plainfield, IL
