Spaghetti Squash with White Wine, Spinach & Shrimp

Last week, I made spaghetti squash for the 1st time in place of pasta for dinner & I must say it ROCKED! Here's what I did should you want to give it a try...

Squash: (small - medium size)
sliced in half length-wise
Baked the squash on 375 for 20 minutes (10 each side)
scooped out the core & separated the "spaghetti" with a fork

saute pancetta, red onion, lots of garlic, pignolia nuts, red pepper flakes in olive oil
add a package of frozen spinach (I didn't have fresh spinach handy)
add white wine & chicken stock (approx a half cup of each)
add a pinch of kosher salt (teeny tiny bit)
add parmigiano reggiano grated cheese
add shrimp

This is something I came up with on the spot based on the ingredients I had available at home. I don't use actual measurements -- everything is to taste.

Feel free to leave comments or your Spaghetti Squash recipes.
