Spaghetti Squash with Garlic, Spinach & Shrimp Recipe

So I fell in love with cooking spaghetti squash and am no longer intimidated by it.  I can easily cut them now, split them and cooking them is incredibly simple (especially with this awesome knife). It also turns out dinner guests have a ton of fun scraping their own noodles out of the squash so it’s a lot of fun to eat as well.

My friend is visiting from Brazil and asked if I’d make him dinner.  Since I had good luck cooking a spaghetti squash marinara the previous week, I decided why not give it a shot.  His only requirements are that I had shrimp and bacon in the dish.  Instead of just doing those, I also added chorizo for heat and garlic spinach because it’s delicious and brings all of the other flavors together.

This dish has a bunch of steps, but they’re all super easy and it only takes an hour to make.  It came out incredibly amazing and I highly recommend you try making it as well.  (I ended up not putting the chorizo inside for the images because it was better once I crumbled it and put it over the stuff on the plate after we scraped it).

How to Make Roasted Spaghetti Squash Marinara

I have never cooked a spaghetti squash before so I was a bit nervous.  After making my first, it is one of the easiest recipes that looks and tastes like it came from a professional chef.  I did cheat a bit and use a store bought spaghetti sauce, but I modified the flavor to make it taste more homemade and it matched the taste of the roasted spaghetti squash perfectly.

If you’re looking for a recipe with how to make spaghetti squash marinara, this is one that is incredibly easy and tastes great.  It also inspired me to come up with a few more twists which I’ll be trying shortly.
