(Trust me on this, it will just delight you)
Serves 2 Servings; net carbohydrates: 12grams per serving.

Notes from the Chef

Quick and simple to make but it tastes like you worked for hours. I added the mushrooms to this dish to give it a bit more meatiness.
New Note: I NOW use Shirataki noodles in place of spaghetti squash.

Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 TBSP. butter, melted

  3. Place squash in the oven for 30 minutes.
  4. Clean the mushrooms and cut into quarters or sixths (depending on the size of the mushroom)
  5. Sautee the shallot in the butter for 1 minute. Add the garlic and mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook until the liquid just starts to come out from the mushrooms. Turn off the heat and add the cream. Stir to combine. Add shrimp and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Add parmesan cheese.
