Butternut Squash Noodles Recipe by Yumna Jawad

You can enjoy this dish by simply seasoning it with salt, pepper and butter or olive oil, or you can add a sauce to them like Alfredo or marinara. Once you make the zoodles, you can boil, sauté or oven-roast them for a delicious fall-inspired low-carb noodles.

How to cut and peel butternut squash?

Butternut squash is tubular in shape with a wide neck part that is seeded. You want to cut the butternut squash right where the shape changes from the tube to the wide neck. You can save that wide piece to peel, seed and chop and roast a later time.

As for the neck of the butternut squash, trim off the end so you can stand it upright on a cutting board, and use a knife or vegetable peeler to remove the skin. Now you’re ready to make noodles! And of all the vegetables, like zucchini noodles and sweet potato noodles, this butternut squash was the toughest one, and small handheld spiralizers may have a tough time doing the job.

We recommend you using something strong and sturdy like the Paderno spiralizer or something similar. And, you want to use the thickest blade to push the butternut squash through the machine. This is the hardest part of the recipe, but if you keep the squash sturdy, it should only take you a couple minutes.

Can I freeze butternut squash noodles?

Yes, you can freeze butternut squash noodles. But if you’re going to freeze them, we recommend doing so before cooking them. Squash retains a lot of water which can yield to a mushy consistency if frozen and thawed. To freeze the uncooked butternut squash noodles, simply place in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 3 months.
