Directions

Step 1 

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Step 2 

Cut ends off of the spaghetti squash and cut width-wise into 4 circles. Scoop out the insides of squash that contain seeds.

Step 3 

Place on baking sheet and drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through or until squash is tender.

Step 4 

Remove from oven and allow to cool enough to handle before peeling the skin off the squash. Using a fork, shred the insides to resemble noodles. Set aside.

Step 5 

While squash is cooking, make Alfredo sauce. Heat 1/4 cup of the milk in a small pot over medium heat. Add cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Add rest of the milk, Parmesan, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside.

Step 6 

Heat a frying pan over medium heat with 1 teaspoon oil. When hot, add the shrimp. Sprinkle with garlic powder and salt and cook for about 5 minutes, flipping half way through. Add spinach and cook until just wilted.

Step 7 

Add squash and sauce to the pan with shrimp and toss gently to coat with sauce. Serve with extra grated Parmesan and chili flakes.
