Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 1 spaghetti squash, cut in halves┬á

Directions

  1. Add 3 cups water in your vitaclay. Place spaghetti squash in clay pot. Set on Stew or Fast to cook for 30-40 minutes or until squash is tender. 
  2. Meanwhile, in another large (12-inch), heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute. Be careful, the garlic burns easily! Add the shrimp, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat, add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
  3. When squash is cooked through, take out the cooked squash and let it cool off. Use a fork to scrape and fluff the strands from the sides of the squash. Drain the excess liquid and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well, and serve.
