Ingredients

Stovetop Instructions

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 3 days in the fridge, but the consistency is best if eaten the first day.
Freezing Instructions: If you'd like to freeze the butternut squash noodles, I recommend doing so before cooking them. You can freeze in a freezer safe container or bag for up to 3 months.
Equipment: I use the Paderno Spiralizer to create the butternut squash noodles. It's strong and sturdy and can handle the large size of the squash.
