Caprese Chicken 'Pasta' Salad

From our skinny table to yours...

How is it almost September?  This summer just FLEW by!  With that said, we aren't bringing you everything pumpkin yet!!  We are still enjoying our FAV summertime flavors, one of them being Caprese.  We LOVE all things Caprese.  See Caprese Omelette below ;)

Today we bring you our Caprese Chicken 'Pasta' Salad. 


Dinner in under 30 minutes?  Of course, we are busy mommies and don't have hours to spend in the kitchen with toddlers running around and an infant needing our attention :)

One of our FAV healthy swaps in the kitchen has always been using spaghetti squash instead of carb heavy pasta!  So today we are simply mixing grilled balsamic garlic chicken, garden tomato (we have a LOT), mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and fresh lemon juice into our squash and calling it a day!  Simple and packs a giant flavor punch!



We KNOW you will love this one!  & with Labor Day right around the corner, this one will surely WOW all your friends too :)
