Stir Fried Spaghetti Squash

I  love spaghetti squash!  It is one of the most versatile vegetables to use for dinner.  I like to think of it as a surprise inside the bright yellow outer shell.  When baked the inside is filled with hot, steaming strands of yellow squash that are a great substitute for pasta.  We usually have it as a spaghetti for dinner one evening and the leftover is used in a stir fry.  I try to use lots of the vegetables from our Bountiful Basket in the stir fry.  I hope you will enjoy this recipe!
