What You'll Need:

1 large spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise

Kosher salt + freshly ground pepper

1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 roma tomatos, diced

1/2 lemon

1 bunch fresh basil, roughly chopped

How To Make It Happen:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.  Cut squash in half lengthwise, removing seeds and season with salt and pepper. Place cut side down in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Add 3/4 cup water, and roast until tender when pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes. Let cool.
  2. When about 25 minutes have passed, on a rimmed baking sheet, toss shrimp with 1 teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Scoop out seeds from squash and discard. With a fork, scrape flesh into a large bowl. Add shrimp and any cooking juices, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon oil; toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, top with parsley, and serve with lemon wedges.
