Shrimp Scampi Spaghetti Squash

This turned out a lot better than I thought. Spaghetti Squash has become one of the most versatile ingredients in my kitchen. Tonight, I made a delicious shrimp scampi with red bell peppers and asparagus and served it over theĀ spaghetti. Give it a try! It even tasted good cold.
