Begin by making your sauce. In a blender add all your ingredients EXCEPT your BASIL & LIME. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust your seasonings. Pour sauce into a small sauce pan and turn to a low simmer. Add in your fresh basil, stir in. Let simmer on low for 5-7 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in your lime. Set aside. .
In a large saute pan add your onion & ginger. Saute for about 3 minutes. Next add your red pepper and saute. After another 3 minutes add in all other veggies and cook 5 minutes more. Add in your cooked spaghetti squash & stir until all combined. .
Turn heat to low and slowly stir in your sauce. Once all combined turn off heat & taste. I added a little more salt and siracha! Top with your favorite toppings & dive in! .
