Chicken spagetti is usually made with canned soups, white spagetti & other overly processed ingredients. I use organic quinoa spagetti which is high in fiber & protein. Quinoa is loaded with nutrients & protein. My teenage son & his friends can not get enough of this dish. I put Italian cheese on half & cheddar on half because my hubby likes cheddar & my son prefers Italian.
