Course Main Course
Servings 2


  • 1 spaghetti squash, cooked and ready to use
  • 3/4 cup kalamata olive tapenade I used Trader Joe's Olive Tapenade with Kalamata and Chalkidiki Olives - SO GOOD!
  • 1 lb frozen cooked shrimp, tail off - THAWED I use Trader Joes Medium Size Frozen cooked Shrimp, tail-off
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves


  • Heat your stovetop on high, place the olive tapenade into a large pan for 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Add your shrimp and spaghetti squash in and mix everything together.
  • Tear up those basil leaves with your hands and throw it into the mixture.
  • Stir all the contents in the pan well. Then keep it on the heat {for a few minutes at most} and stir consistently until everything is hot and ready to serve! Be careful not to overheat, you don't want to burn the squash or make it soggy!


If you're starting with hot spaghetti squash and shrimp, you won't need to heat it over the stovetop as long.
