To make 8 generous servings, begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment.


Cut squash in half, scoop out seeds and place cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and roast until the spaghetti squash is just tender and the flesh pulls into strands when tested with a fork, 55 minutes to 1 hour 10 minutes, depending on size. Remove from the oven and turn cut-side up to cool.


Mash 1 teaspoon of salt and garlic with the side of a knife to form a paste. Whisk peanut butter, Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt, maple syrup, lime juice, hot sauce, ginger, garlic paste and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt in a large bowl until smooth. Add ¼ cup basil and 2 tablespoons cilantro to the dressing and stir to combine.


Scoop the spaghetti squash out of the shell and mix into the peanut sauce in the bowl. Chill until cold.


To serve, top the spaghetti squash mixture with red bell pepper and red onion. Top with the remaining ¼ cup basil and the remaining 2 tablespoons of cilantro and peanuts. Serve with additional hot sauce, if desired.
