Shrimp and Vegetable Delight

Sometimes I crave Chinese for lunch and came up with a Shrimp and Vegetable Delight. I remember being at a Chinese restaurant years ago and one of the menu items was named Delight at that end of the name. So I decided to create a Paleo Recipe!  It was quick and yummy.  I actually had 1/2 of a spaghetti squash left over from my  Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Artichokes  which we made the other day for lunch!  We are busy here at Cindy’s Table creating and testing new recipes…
