Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 oz butternut squash “noodles”
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • tbsp fresh sage chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Spiralize the raw butternut squash into noodles.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add butternut squash noodles and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning frequently to ensure they cook evenly. When noodles are slightly softened, remove from pan and set aside. Keep warm.
  • Add butter to pan and heat until melted. Stir in chopped sage and cook until fragrant, approximately 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Return butternut squash noodles to pan and toss to coat in sage butter mixture. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite entrée or as a light main course.

Notes

Be sure not to overcook the noodles, especially if you plan to add them to a sauce, like marinara or fettucini, where they will continue cooking. They should be just barely softened when removed from the heat.
