Butternut Squash Noodles with Mushroom Cream Sauce These easy and healthy spiralized butternut squash noodles are a perfect keto side dish and a perfect alternative for spaghetti. I give step by step instructions for how to make the noodles and how to cook the noodles.

Butternut squash noodles

I have been all about zucchini noodles ever since I started living a keto lifestyle.  But these Butternut Squash Noodles are my new favorite.  They don’t get watery or mushy and they feel a lot more like spaghetti to me.  They also have a great flavor!

To get started with the noodles, we have to first prep our butternut squash.  This involves peeling the squash with a vegetable peeler and then cutting off the bulbous end.  The round end is not easily spiralized, so we are going to save it for another recipe.

Now we take the long end that we just cut off and load it into the spiralizer.  I chose the blade that makes thick spaghetti noodles.

Here is a great video showing how to spiralize a butternut squash:

Once we get the butternut squash noodles all made, set them aside while we make the sauce.

For the Mushroom Cream Sauce, I first sautéed the sliced mushrooms in butter.  I added some thyme sprigs and seasoned the mushrooms with salt and pepper.

I then added in the cream and the chicken broth.

HOW TO COOK BUTTERNUT SQUASH NOODLES

To cook the butternut squash noodles, I added them to the mushroom cream sauce and covered the pan with a lid to let them soften.

If you were making these without the mushroom cream sauce, you could put them in a skillet with a lid over medium low heat and let them steam for a few minutes, or until they are at your desired doneness.

Now it’s time to check for seasoning and serve!

These would be great served with chicken!  This is a great low carb 30 minute meal (one of my favorite types of meals to make).
