This recipe is South Beach and Atkins Diet friendly. We have been eating high protein, low fat, low carb for quite some time and missed some of our favorite dishes, so I have been finding a way to remake them. This is a great recipe to utilize leftovers!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place squash, cut-side down, onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until flesh is tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Cool until easily handled.

  • Scrape spaghetti squash flesh into a large bowl using a fork. Whisk eggs, evaporated milk, garlic powder, salt, and oregano together in a separate bowl; pour over squash. Mix chicken, 1/2 of the Parmesan cheese, 1/2 of the green onions, bacon bits, and black pepper into squash mixture; pour into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Top mixture with remaining Parmesan cheese and green onions.

  • Bake in the oven until cooked through and set, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For a low-fat option, use fat-free evaporated milk and packaged bacon bits. For a low-cholesterol option, use only the egg whites and double the amount of eggs used.

Play around with the seasonings! Carbonara sauce is a basic cream sauce and will accept many different additions.
