To cook a spaghetti squash: preheat over to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Drizzle with a couple tbsp olive oil, pepper, garlic powder and a little salt. Bake for 40 minutes. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes and then shred with a fork! Tip!!! If you have trouble cutting the squash try microwaving it a few minutes or bake in the oven whole for the first 10-20 minutes, cut using oven mitts, drizzle with oil and seasoning, then finish cooking!

While squash is cooking, whisk together oil, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and pepper. Allow shrimp to marinade for at least 15 minutes.

Once squash is cooling, sauteed peppers, peas and carrots with a little oil over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Then add shrimp and marinade, cook 1-2 minutes per side until shrimp is cooked. Serve over shredded spaghetti squash.
