Butternut Squash Noodles Recipe
These butternut squash noodles are a healthier alternative to pasta and can be made in less than 15 minutes as the main dish, part of a healthier stir fry recipe, or as a delicious side dish.
- 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
- 4 c. pre-packaged or fresh butternut squash “noodles”
- 3 T. unsalted butter
- 1½ T. fresh sage chopped
- 2 t. ground cinnamon
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
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 cinnamon and cook until fragrant, approximately 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Return butternut squash noodles to the 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.
