Quinoa and Squash Fritters

Here is a new one for the Curley household!  These yummy fritters include whole grains and spaghetti squash and tasted great dipped in Bolthouse Salsa Ranch Greek yogurt dressing.  Tip!  Spaghetti squash can be a little cumbersome to make.  You can bake spaghetti squash and keep the strands for a couple days in the fridge for additional recipes (such as spaghetti squash pie!).
