Spaghetti Squash with Chunky Roasted Marinara and Shrimp is a healthy way to eat pasta and tomato sauce.
Spaghetti Squash with Chunky Marinara and Shrimp is a healthier version of the pasta dishes I love so much. If I could eat pasta and potatoes every day, I would. Seriously. Spaghetti squash is the answer to those of us who crave those carbs! The only problem is convincing hubby of the same.
Hubby: I don’t get it, so what is the main meal?
Me: The squash.
Hubby: Squash is a side.
Me: Explains how a spaghetti squash is used…..
Hubby: No way! Seriously? And it looks and tastes just like pasta? I don’t believe you.
*Later that afternoon while hubby is out watching football with his friends, all via text message*
Hubby: Do you mind if 4 more people come over for dinner? They don’t believe what you said about this whole squash/pasta thing either.
And here it began and I proved to a table of six men that spaghetti squash does indeed taste like real pasta. The same lovely neighbors that gave hubby an acorn squash to bring home to me also provided us with two spaghetti squash. The sizes of spaghetti squash vary greatly, so it is hard to judge how many you will need to serve your guests. Generally one medium size will be enough for 2 people. A larger spaghetti squash can feed 3-4.
