*Light soy sauce is not the sodium-reduced soy sauce. It is an actual product. Major major brands of soy sauce closely approximate light soy sauce
**Dark soy sauce is available in larger supermarkets and Chinese markets. If you cannot obtain it, a good substitute is 1 tbs regular soy sauce (like La Choy) and 1/2 tsp molasses.
Cook spaghetti per package directions to al dente stage. Drain and rinse; set aside.
Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add oil.
Brown ground beef, breaking up clumps. Add the garlic, light soy sauce, sugar and salt; stir to combine.
Add the celery or bok choy, carrots and onions. Stir fry until celery is bright green.
Add the cooked and drained spaghetti and the sauce. Toss to coat completely.
Turn out on a serving platter.
