To me, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo is the definition of comfort food. Now you can enjoy this creamy, Italian-inspired dish without the inflammatory gluten and dairy!

My Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Bake is made with fiber-rich spaghetti squash instead of fettuccine, and hormone-balancing coconut milk in place of the butter and cheese!

Your family is going to LOVE my autoimmune-friendly spin on this beloved classic! Enjoy!
