One big perk of meal planning is that once you get the hang of it, you find you don’t have to cook every. single. day. For example, this spaghetti squash with chicken recipe.
Go ahead and bake your squash beforehand – possibly on the weekend, when you have more time. The shredded chicken can easily be pulled from leftovers. And the pesto in this recipe can also be made ahead of time.
To store summer pesto, drizzle olive oil over the top and cover. This will help to keep the pesto green. It will keep for a few weeks in the fridge (if it lasts that long!) or you can freeze it.
