I’m loving using my spiralizer to make pasta alternatives. Like this butternut squash spaghetti recipe!
Not only do you to cut down on the carbs you consume, but using spiralized veggies also helps to cut down on your cooking time.
How is that?
It’s because when we’re looking at how to cook butternut squash noodles, the very best way to cook them is to quicky stir fry them for a couple of minutes.
The thin strands of vegetable noodles quickly cook compared to pasta. And proves you can stir fry butternut squash. As long as it’s in thin strands!
That’s great for me when I’m cooking in the evenings. It means less time is needed to get a meal on the table.
