Asian Spaghetti Squash Salad

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Spaghetti squash is a very versatile vegetable.  It can be used as a nutritious substitute for any pasta.  For our family weekend barbecue, I decided to make a pasta salad.  I used spaghetti squash as the pasta in my recipe for Asian Salad.  It was a family favorite!

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!

Mushroom Spaghetti Squash

We are a meat loving family (my husband is ‘the meat man’ and works for a large meat distribution company – so we are blessed to be able to frequently indulge in meat) but this is one of our families favorite ways to eat Spaghetti Squash. It is a meatless dish (but could easily have sausage added for some meat but has plenty of flavor without) it uses mushrooms and squash from last weekend and onions (and squash if the week befores is already gone!) from this most recent Saturday.

A great side dish to this meatless entree is a nice big chopped salad, topped with tomatoes, avocados and any other veggies your family loves and dinner rolls!
