Chicken ranch spaghetti bake

March 19, 2017

I have been wanting to make a spaghetti bake for awhile and this idea just came to me one day because I had a ranch powder dip in my cupboard that I was wondering what to do with.. This dish is so full of flavor and I think the whole family will enjoy it.. It makes 6 generous servings at only 7 smart points each, pasta can vary in points so I have included a picture of the brand I used and showed the nutrition information to compare.

    Have you ever replaced the spaghetti noodles with spaghetti squash? You could bring the points down and have the same taste. Downside it won’t have the same shape when you take it out of the pan, more gooey casserole like, but I might have to try it. How many points was the noodles? And I love your blog/recipes! Thank you for all you put out, it’s a great bridge from old food choices to new ones that taste great!

    I made this tonight – delicious. I did swap the cream cheese for no fat greek yogurt and it tastes great. I also added fresh mushrooms (because I had them)!
    Thanks for all of your recipes – I really appreciate it!
