1 (3-pound) spaghetti squash
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon melted ghee or extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt, divided
½ teaspoon cracked black pepper, divided
2 ½ pounds Roma tomatoes, quartered
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds medium wild-caught shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cups chopped chard, spinach, or baby kale
juice of 1 lemon
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds.
3. Rub 1 teaspoon of the ghee all over the skin of the squash and on the surface of the cut sides. Sprinkle the cut sides with ½ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the pepper.
4. Place the halves cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet.
5. Place the tomatoes in a 9-by-12-inch baking dish and drizzle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of ghee, garlic, remaining 1 teaspoon of salt, and remaining ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Toss to combine.
6. Place both the squash and the tomato mixture in the oven, with the tomatoes on the higher rack.
7. Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring the tomatoes once halfway through. The squash should be slightly soft to the touch.
8. Pull the squash out and set aside until cool enough to handle.
9. Add the shrimp, parsley, chard, and lemon juice to the tomato dish and stir to combine. Return the dish to the oven and continue roasting for 20 minutes, until the shrimp are pink and cooked through.
10. Use a fork to loosen the strings of noodles from the squash and transfer them to serving bowls. Top with the shrimp and tomato sauce.

I made this salad to take to my sister-friend's house for a potluck dinner. It's fresh and perfect for a sunny spring like day. It's also really easy to make. The dressing has a healthy dose of apple cider vinegar (ACV). ACV, supports digestion by p...
