Wash and dry squash. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.
Thoroughly rinse shrimp under cold water. Drain.
Heat the two tablespoons butter in a saucepan. Blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Cook until it bubbles. Remove from heat and gradually add chicken broth, stirring constantly. Bring to boil for 1 or 2 minutes.
Blend in whipping cream and minced onion. Mix in the raw shrimp.
Place a layer of squash in the bottom of a 1-1/2 quart casserole and spoon half of the shrimp sauce over the squash. Repeat layers with remaining squash and shrimp sauce.
