Spaghetti Squash & Pork Stir-Fry

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spaghetti_squash_pork_stir_fry.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2007

Here's an unusual but delicious way to use the delicate strands of spaghetti squash—in an Asian-inspired pork stir-fry. The flavors of toasted sesame oil, fresh ginger, garlic and a hit of spicy red chile sauce cling to the beautiful strands. Serve with jasmine rice.

4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut squash in half. Scoop out and discard seeds. Place each half, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Bake until the squash is tender, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes then shred the flesh with a fork into a bowl. Discard the shell.
  3. Slice pork into thin rounds; cut each round into matchsticks.
  4. Heat a large wok over medium-high heat. Swirl in oil, then add scallions, garlic, ginger and salt; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the pork; cook, stirring constantly, until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the squash threads and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add soy sauce, rice vinegar and chile sauce (or chile oil); cook, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 30 seconds.
