Ingredients

  • 1 Spaghetti Squash roasted
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 4 links Andouille Sausage sliced
  • 1 lb Shrimp peeled & deveined
  • 1 1/2 Tbls Creole Seasoning
  • 1 Yellow Onion thinly sliced
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Jalapeno thinly sliced
  • 14.5 oz Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbls Fresh Parsley chopped

Instructions

  • The first step is to roast the squash - see how HERE
  • While the squash is roasting, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat
    Add in the sliced sausage and saute until nicely browned and heated through
    Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside
  • Add the shrimp to the same pan (add more oil if needed) and season with 1 Tbls of the creole seasoning
    Saute for 3-4 minutes until shrimp is pink and just cooked through and remove from pan
  • Add in the sliced onion and peppers, saute for 5 minutes until veggies start to soften, then stir in the minced garlic and remaining fire roasted tomatoes - let simmer gently for another 5 minutes
    Stir in the sausage, shrimp and cooked spaghetti squash and leave over heat until it is all warmed through (3-5 minutes)
    Add filling to the squash shells and top with fresh parsley
    Enjoy!

Notes

I use andouille sausage in this recipe, if you are doing a round of Whole30, be sure to check the labels for added sugars or additives. If you can't find a compliant andouille, smoked sausage also works incredibly well in this stuffed squash. I got my wild caught shrimp from ButcherBox, it is my favorite place to get the best quality meats and seafood and it gets delivered right to my front door!
