    jfresh444's Note:

    Yummy, healthier version of spaghetti! Shrimp and colorful peppers and onions add a summer feel to this dish my mother and I created one night. Quick with microwave, but if you prefer an oven, bake the squash halves at 350 for about an hour or until soft. Capers would make a good addition to this! Spaghetti sauce has great basic taste so it could be a healthier base to any pasta dish. Serves four for a delicious dinner or a side could serve 8-10.

      Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and saute garlic.
    4. 4
      Add shrimp, onions, and both peppers and saute until shrimp are cooked.
    5. 5
      Take squash out of microwave, remove seeds, and scrape out squash with a fork, creating "spaghetti.".

      Transfer shrimp mixture to a bowl and place a plate over it to keep it hot.
    7. 7
      Using the same pan the shrimp were cooked in, saute squash for a minute with a little butter and add salt and pepper.

      This is a good recipe but we felt like it missed seasonings. Maybe dried herbs would have more flavor. And even fresh parmesan could be great. Thanks jfresh444 :) Made for PAC spring 2011
