Delicious and Healthy NO PASTA Shrimp Pesto


Reposting this yummy recipe I created again last night and it was better than ever. This time I added a little Parmesean that gave the dish a nice little kick! This dish is one of my favorite recipes. It's not only delicious but very nutritious! I substitute starchy carb and calorie filled pasta with a healthier plant based alternative.... spaghetti squash!

You can make your own pesto sauce which is pretty easy, but for this recipe I used a Costco brand. In my opinion its just as good!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 good sized spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 Medium red onion
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 cup of pesto sauce
  • spray oil
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

** Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. **

image

** Cut off each end of squash **

image

** CAREFULLY cut the squash in half. It can be a little tricky so be careful. Take a spoon and scrape out the insides **

** Season your squash with your favorite spices. I used garlic salt and pepper. After seasoning your squash you can either spray it with nonstick spray for healthier alternative or brush olive oil for a tastier alternative. Make sure to spray your baking sheet with nonstick spray as well. **

image

** Bake the squash face down for 35-45 minutes **

image

** Once your squash is cooked take a fork and start scraping the flesh of the squash. You should see strings of "spaghetti" **

image

image

** Sautee a medium red or white onion and 6-7 cloves of garlic in 2 Tbs of olive oil. **

image

** Once your onions are translucent add a pound of shrimp and seasonings (I use salt, pepper, and garlic powder) **

image

** Once your shrimp is cooked, about 6-8 minutes on medium heat, add your spaghetti squash. Incorporate the two together. **

image

** Add about a cup to a cup and a half of basil pesto sauce. **

image

** Et Voila! There you have it. A yummy delicious and nutritious meal! **
