Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash is one delicious, healthy and flavorful recipe. A perfect dish for your meatless Mondays or a quick weeknight dish if you wish to replace carblicious pasta.
Well, we all know that Cacio e Pepe, or in translation cheese and pepper, is a simple and delicious way to prepare a pasta dish. It is a pasta dish from modern Roman cuisine.
However, I say move over zoodles because there is a new sheriff in town.
I predict that this year we going to see more and more of butternut squash noodles.
Don’t get me wrong I love zoodles, but you could mix and match and add zoodles to butternut squash for extra nutrition and flavour.
That being said its perfect just the way it is especially if you love butternut squash.
You can serve it with any protein such as fish, poultry or meat, or tofu if you want a true meatless meal.
Anyhow, one fine afternoon I had this bowl of raw butternut squash noodles in my fridge. My husband picked up from the store just a few days before.
I would usually spiralize veggies myself, but I guess it was on sale and he got it for me.
He knows how much I love butternut squash. The only butternut squash dish that I never cared for is creamy butternut squash soup.
I do have a fantastic recipe for that soup, but I am just not a fan. Personally to me, it tastes like baby food.
