Healthy Humpday – Spaghetti Squash Alternatives

Who doesn’t love an easy weeknight pasta dish? How about a flavorful dish that is lighter than pasta? Tim and Lori remade a favorite pasta dish with a spaghetti squash alternative. The results….delicious!

spaghetti squash ingredients dr kitzmiller


  • 1 spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise, seeds removed
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic (it’s ok to use minced garlic in a jar for this recipe!)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can quartered artichoke halves, drained
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes in a jar, drained and sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese or feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

It’s Pasta Night

  1. Halve the squash lengthwise, scooping out the stringy flesh and seeds; place the flesh side down in a baking dish with a half inch of water; roast at 350 for 30 minutes.
  2. Saute shrimp, garlic, and mushrooms for 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly until cooked.
  3. Shred squash with a fork so that it resembles spaghetti.
  4. Toss shredded squash with shrimp mixture, artichoke halves, and sundried tomatoes.
  5. Toss finished mixture with parmesan and/or feta cheese; salt and pepper to taste (feel free to add cracked red pepper flakes on top for a little spice!).
