Skillet Spaghetti Squash

I am like a kid with spaghetti squash.  I enjoy pulling out the strands and seeing "almost" spaghetti strands.  You can do so much with this squash.  You can sub it in, in place of spaghetti.  You can mix it up with a sauce of any kind, mix it with vegetables, add some chopped meat or chicken or flake some fish into it.

I came across Paula Deen's recipe and decided to try it.

Skillet Spaghetti Squash    (adapted from Paula Deen)

Ingredients:

1 spaghetti squash

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 green pepper, sliced

1/2 red pepper, sliced

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons orange marmalade

1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Procedure
Microwave spaghetti squash, cut in halves for about 7 minutes until you can pull out the strands with a fork.  (You can bake this in an oven for 40 minutes, if you prefer.)
While squash is cooking, put olive oil in a large skillet.  Add onions and cook  for about 6 minutes, until onions are translucent and start to brown. Add bell peppers and cook for another 3 minutes.  I left the peppers rather crisp.
Add sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, orange marmalade,  black pepper and if you would like, salt.  Cook until the marmalade melts and you can mix it throughout the squash.
Serve in bowls and enjoy.

Thanks Paula.
