Let's Make It
Cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add beans and carrots; cook and stir 3 min. or until crisp-tender, adding garlic for the last minute. Stir in bamboo shoots, pineapple and ginger; cook and stir 1 min.
Drain spaghetti. Add to skillet with dressing; mix lightly. Sprinkle with nuts.
How to Chop Nuts
Using a chef's knife and holding the tip end down on the cutting board, cut back and forth across the nuts until they are chopped to the desired size.
Freezing Fresh Ginger
Wondering what to do with an extra piece of fresh ginger? Here's good news - you can freeze it! Just wrap it in plastic wrap, seal in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 6 months. When you're ready to use it, simply slice off the amount needed and grate it while still frozen.
How to Mince Fresh Gingerroot
Peel desired amount of fresh gingerroot with a small paring knife. Cut into thin slices, then cut into matchstick-like sticks. Chop with a chef's knife into desired size. Or, grate using a microplane grater. Slices of gingerroot can also be used to infuse liquids.
