On my quest to try to eat better I have decided to give spaghetti squash a try.
Before I go any further I need to confess something. I love pasta. I don’t just like it or think it’s OK, I truly LOVE pasta!
So for me to think that maybe I should change it up a little bit is kind of a big thing! And that’s just exactly what I did. I decided to give it a try.
First thing first. How do you make it? Do you know that there is a ton of different ways to prepare this squash? Trust me on this one. So below is the recipe that I used to get the squash ready and then what I put on top of it.
While that was cooking, I melted a little coconut oil and shelled some raw shrimp and cooked them until they were done. I removed them from the pan and added a bunch of different vegetables and cherry tomatoes and cooked all of this until it was hot inside.Then I added the shrimp back to the pan and BAM! That was the topping.
Now for the squash – I scrapped out the inside of them, added some salt and pepper to the squash and then topped it off with my vegetable/shrimp mixture. The final touch was to drizzle some olive oil on top of it all. It was really good! Kind of a lot of work – but still pretty good.
And for the seeds? I cleaned the gunk off of them. Which by the way is pretty gross if you ask me,and drizzled some olive oil on top with salt and pepper. I tossed them into a 250 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Not bad. Not caramel popcorn by any means- but not bad.
