Low Carb Creamed Shrimp & Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash2One of the things I like about spaghetti squash (and there are many) is its versatility so here is another recipe using it. Here is another Creamed Chicken & Spaghetti Squash Bake and another Spaghetti Squash Carbonara and another Spaghetti Squash Pastitsio and another Stuffed Red Peppers I hope at least one of these trips your trigger. This meal is about all you need with the exception of a salad and maybe a very small dessert.

 As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. I’m thinking a bit of bacon and/or fresh basil might be good in this as well.
  2. This can also be made as a casserole which for a larger family may be easier.
  3. Pulled chicken may be subbed for shrimp.
