I prefer to cook spaghetti squash in the oven.  I suggest poking holes all over the squash with a knife- to allow steam to escape and then microwaving for 1 minute to make it easier to cut the squash in half, quick tip from a friend!  After cutting the squash in half, lightly drizzle olive oil over the squash "meat" and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place cut side down and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.  When it slightly cools, use a fork to remove the squash, and place aside.

In a large skillet, add 2 Tablespoons of butter and 1 pound of peeled shrimp.  Stir lightly until shrimp are turning pink. Add 1/2 Teaspoon of garlic, a dash of oregano  and some dried parsley, continuing to stir. When shrimp are done (not over cooked) remove to a bowl.

In same skillet, add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 cup milk, stir until it becomes bubbly.  Add 1 cup of parmasan cheese and stir until well blended, and thickening. Add more parmasan if it is not as thick as you would like. Then slowly stir in the shrimp, continually blending and finally add the spaghetti (squash). Serve with grated parmasan and some garlic bread and your meal is complete!

Enjoy!  Kathy
