Roasted Spaghetti Squash
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
2 medium spaghetti squash
2 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 t. garlic powder
Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
3 T. unsalted butter
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz. small shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tail off*
3 T. fresh parsley, chopped
¼ c. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
*May substitute any size shrimp for this recipe. If using large or extra-large shrimp, plan on 4-5 shrimp per serving. If using frozen shrimp, thaw completely and pat dry before cooking.
Place top oven rack in the centre position and pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminium foil or a baking sheet. Set aside.
Trim the top and bottom off each spaghetti squash to create a flat surface. Sit the squash upright and slice down the middle with a sharp knife. Scoop out the pulp and seeds with a spoon without piercing all the way through the squash.
Brush the edges and inside of each squash half with olive oil. Sprinkle each half with the garlic powder and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Place the squash cut side down on the prepared baking sheet and place in the pre-heated oven for 40 minutes, or until the squash is for fork tender.
When the squash is almost ready, melt the unsalted butter in a large skillet. Add the garlic and shrimp, and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir to combine and cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp is warmed through and opaque, approximately 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove from heat and set aside. Keep warm.
Remove the squash from the oven and cool for several minutes. Once cool enough to handle, flip over each squash and carefully “shred” the inside with a fork to create spaghetti-like strands, leaving the shredded squash inside the squash shells.
Evenly divide the contents of the skillet, including the remaining melted butter, between the spaghetti squash halves. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and gently toss to combine. Top with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve immediately. Enjoy!
