Ginger Chicken Meatball Noodle Bowl

I am really enjoying creating bowl recipes!  It's fun enjoying all of the flavors together.  Not to mention we just love meatballs in our family.  I hope you love this recipe!

Cindy's Note:  You can use spaghetti squash, rice noodles or even zucchini noodles.  I used linguini just because but also made it again and used spaghetti squash.  Very yummy!!!  

Spaghetti Squash - After I baked the squash and removed the strands then put in a bowl.  I added fresh ginger, salt pepper and chopped cilantro then drizzled a little sesame oil!  Amazing....

Sorry I took the picture before we garnished and ate!  We just couldn't wait.....
