Sauteed Butternut Squash Noodles
When you want a nutritious alternative to regular pasta, make my delicious, savory butternut squash noodles with or without a spiralizer.
I love, love, love pasta, but too much of it is not good for me.
So I love making similar dishes made with veggies instead of regular pasta.
No one is going to take a bite of this butternut squash ‘pasta’ and think it is the real deal, but it is absolutely delicious in its own way.
If you have a spiralizer, you can quickly make your own squash noodles.
However, there is an even easier way to make this dish by using pre-packaged butternut squash noodles from the produce department of your grocery store.
They generally cost a bit more than if you do it yourself, but this does help you get dinner on the table more quickly.
I’m generally a do it yourselfer in the kitchen, but there are times when I do want the convenience of pre-made vegetable noodles.
The pre-packaged squash noodles still have good nutrients, since they are just cut and not overly processed.
Whether you make your own noodles or purchase pre-packaged ones, this is a delicious dish that is packed full of veggie nutrition.
