Roast spaghetti squash: Cut spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise. Scoop out seeds. Brush inside with oil. Place facedown on baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until you can pierce with a fork. Simply scrape out “spaghetti” with a fork. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients and set aside.
In a large pan, heat extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, red onion, mushrooms, carrots, bean sprouts, and scallions. Saute until the onion starts to turn translucent and the mushrooms begin to soften. Add in chicken if using raw and cook for 3-5 minutes. Add in shrimp and cook until the shrimp and chicken are fully cooked through, should take about 5 minutes. If using cooked and shredded chicken, add the chicken in with the shrimp.
Add three cups of the spaghetti squash to the skillet and pour in the sauce. Mix well to combine.
Make a space in the center of your pan and add in 3 eggs. Let cook and mix well, so that the eggs are well incorporated.
Taste and adjust spices as needed.
Serve warm! Add the optional garnishes of lime, extra scallions, and/or peanuts if desired.
