While our first love will always be traditional pasta, we can’t stop thinking about veggie noodles! It’s just what it sounds like–noodles made from thinly-sliced vegetables as a pasta substitute! In this recipe we used a spiralizer, a tool that easily cuts vegetables into long, thin ribbons, but you could also use the thin-strip setting on your mandoline.

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons butter, divided
2/3 cup diced yellow onion
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups chopped kale
2 cups spiralized butternut squash

Directions:

1.Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a pan on medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent.

2. Add mushrooms and cook until browned. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add kale and cook until slightly wilted.
