What I Ate Wednesday- Chicken Marsala Pasta Bake

Happy Wednesday friends! This week’s Sunday Supper series features one of my favorite dishes- Chicken Marsala Pasta Bake! Winter for me means lots of casseroles and comfort foods.

This week’s eats are from my recent travel to Pittsburgh for a business trip!

Breakfast: I only packed breakfast for two of my three days so I decided to venture to the hotel restaurant for breakfast my 2nd day. I went with some oatmeal which I stirred in some PEScience Cookies and Cream protein powder and added fresh strawberries on top. I also ordered an omelet on the side. This was filled with bacon, spinach, mushrooms and onions and topped with spicy salsa.

Lunch: I brought my homemade egg salad for one of my lunches at. I roasted my squash ahead of time and just reheat it in the microwave.  Fortunately the lunchroom at work also has a toaster. Nothing quite like a sandwich on toasted bread!

Dinner: When you’re tired and hungry, you want food fast. Chipotle was about 5 minutes from the hotel so it seemed like a good choice. I have to say that I  was disappointed. The chicken was grisly and the veggies seemed really greasy so it probably wasn’t the best option at 8 in the evening.

Now onto this week’s recipe for my Chicken Marsala Pasta Bake!

Typically I make this recipe and serve it over pasta or brown rice. Instead, I had a spaghetti squash I picked up earlier at the grocery store that I decided to use. I love using spaghetti squash in casseroles since its so versatile. Please let me know if you decide to try this!

  1. I’m definitely enjoying the Sunday Supper Series! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. I don’t crave anything in particular in the winter months – I have to make sure that I don’t undereat, actually, since that’s a bad habit of mine. Need nourishment all year round! 🙂

    Safe travels on the rest of your trip!

    • Hi Liz! Thank you for the awesome feedback! I’m glad your enjoying the series! If you have an ideas of recipes you would like to see, just let me know!

      • I have to admit – I’m still really intimidated when it comes to cooking spaghetti squash. Any chance you could feature more recipes with that? Always love your recipes regardless though! 🙂
