Roasted Butternut Squash “Pasta”

Butternut Squash Pasta

As many of you know, I’m getting married in THREE MONTHS!!! I can hardly believe how quickly the big day is approaching! I’ve been MIA the past few days because my amazing friends threw me a bachelorette party this weekend! It was so much fun and I got to spend time with some of the most amazing women I know.  After a weekend of carefree eating, I knew my body needed some healthy foods.

I had a butternut squash that needed to be used and I wanted to make something completely different.  Lately, I have been obsessed with my paderno spiralizer, so I decided to experiment a bit using my squash!

I can’t believe I’ve never spiralized a butternut squash! The noodles had such a fantastic texture. They were perfectly al dente, and had that gorgeous roasted flavor that I LOVE. I also never use sage, and discovered that IT’S AMAZING! I have honestly always been a bit intimidated by it. I’m not sure why I was hesitant to use the stuff, but I had absolutely no idea how to utilize it. After this dish, sage will definitely be a staple in my cooking.

I cut the "neck" of the squash into four long pieces to use in my spiralizer. As for the rounded base, I cut it into smaller cubes and used what I could of it. The remainder I simply roasted and ate :)

So there you have it, another spiralized creation! If you don’t already have a paderno spiralizer, go and get one!!! I’ve had mine for a few years now and it has held up really well.


Happy Monday everyone!
