1 small spaghetti squash, halved and seeded

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste
1 lemon, juiced

- Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Saute shrimp until pink, tossing often to prevent burning, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add spaghetti squash strands. Mix in lemon juice and zest. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
