Other vegetables that you can spiralize are things like zucchini, carrots, potatoes, onions, and pretty much anything else you can get to run through. I love to make stir fry with all spiralized veggies. It's easy, delicious, and makes a regular kind of dinner a little more fun!

How to make delicious butternut squash noodles:

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 the 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 pan and toss to coat in sage butter mixture. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

What to serve with veggies noodles:

You can serve these noodles with just about anything. Add some meatballs on top for a new take on spaghetti, or serve them along side some tilapia or chicken for an easy weeknight meal.

Another great option is to serve these noodles on their own. You can eat them for a light lunch, or add some steamed or fresh veggies on the side for a little more variety.

If you have leftover chicken on hand you can toss that right in to cook and reheat with the sauce and noodles for a quick dinner idea.
