Spaghetti Squash with Shrimp

I have been wanting to do something with shrimp for quite a while now, and I thought that doing it in combination with spaghetti squash and fresh spices and vegetables would be a good way to go.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH WITH SHRIMP

*Created by Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil (to cook with)
  • 2 bulbs of fresh garlic pressed
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 1 Roma tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup pieces of Parmesan cheese
  • Black Pepper

(Note: Next time I would ass basil, we just didn’t have any fresh basil available)

Directions:

  • Place the entire spaghetti squash on microwavable safe plate and microwave it for 20 minutes or until soft on the outside. (You can cook it in the oven, which I have done, but it honestly works just as well this way and is much quicker.)
  • While the squash is cooking, cut up your vegetables and spices and saute the red onions and garlic in a large frying pan with a little bit of olive oil.
  • When the 20 minutes are up for your squash (or when it is soft), cut it in half. (Be very careful because it is very hot!)
  • Scrape out the seeds. Once completed, scrape out the squash, which should be in spaghetti like strings. Put it in a large mixing bowl.
  • While the squash is still warm, add the Parmesan cheese and mix around so it will begin to melt.
  • Meanwhile, add the shrimp (already peeled) to the onions and garlic that you are sauteing. Add some black pepper.
  • Once shrimp is cooked, add them and the garlic and onions to your squash and mix thoroughly. (Note: you will want to watch the timing on this, so that your squash doesn’t get cold while you are waiting on the shrimp.)
  • Serve in dishes and add fresh diced tomatoes on top.
