Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

1 large spaghetti squash

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

10 red & yellow pepper, sliced

5 snow peas, sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup carrots, sliced

1/4 cup shredded red cabbage

Instructions:

  1. Cut a spaghetti squash in half length wise and scoop out seeds. Lay skin side up in a 13 x 9 pan, season with oil and salt.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until flesh is very tender. Once done, scoop out flesh with a fork so it breaks apart into strings, set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add carrot, garlic, peppers, ginger, and snow peas.  Cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cabbage until heated through, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir in spaghetti squash and sauce mixture until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately.
