During the summer months, I happen to love light, simply meals. Maybe you do too? Recently, I have fallen in love with Gorton’s Everyday Gourmet Products, specifically the shrimp. I was able to pick up Simply Bake Shrimp in the Classic Scampi variety, which happens to be gluten free too. That means we can easily all enjoy them in our family in this Gluten Free Shrimp Scampi with Spaghetti Squash.
The best part with Gorton’s Everyday Gourmet Products is that they are so simple to bake and enjoy quickly, plus you can easily add them to some garden fresh produce too.
We’ve been doing pretty well with our garden this summer, so I try to add in fresh produce as much as possible to meals during the week. It’s so nice to be able to let the kids swim and know that I can get dinner done in minutes, so we stay outside and linger longer during these summer months.
I decided to top our spaghetti squash with the Classic Scampi. It has a delicious buttery flavor which complimented the spaghetti squash so well. I added just a bit of garlic salt to the spaghetti squash, but the sauce the scampi is in was all I needed to add to the spaghetti squash to make this delicious Gluten Free Shrimp Scampi with Spaghetti Squash.
Once you have it all ready to serve, simply add some sliced lemon on top and parsley, then you have a delicious dish ready to serve. The best part is that you can make this delicious seafood dish any night of the week. It only takes about 30 minutes to make and dinner is ready to serve.
