Butternut Squash "Spaghetti"

Submitted by: CMCRISWELL

Introduction

No cooking needed for this tasty recipe. I do suggest using a spiral slicer or saladcco to make the "noodles" with the squash. No cooking needed for this tasty recipe. I do suggest using a spiral slicer or saladcco to make the "noodles" with the squash.

In a food processor finely chop the garlic, onion and basil. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, evoo, apple cider vinegar, honey and Italian seasoning and blend until well mixed. Set aside.

Cut the tops off the tomatoes. Cut them in half and scoop out the seeds. Cut into pieces and finely chop in pulses but do not blend smooth.

Mix the tomatoes into the sauce gently and spoon over the pasta. Sprinkle with salt.

You may also want to use some Parmesan cheese.
