Butternut Squash Spaghetti Recipe

It’s simple and healthy plus it’s ‘free from’ (gluten, wheat, dairy and sugar free).

Butternut Squash Spaghetti with Lemon and Tarragon Dressing
Serves 2

30g cashews
50g macadamia nuts
30g tarragon
1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
100ml water
salt and pepper
450g butternut squash

Directions
Add the cashew and macadamia nuts to a food processor.
Strip the tarragon leaves off the woody stalk and add the leaves to the food processor.
Peel the rind off the lemon and add to the food processor along with the juice of the lemon, olive oil and water.
Season with salt and pepper.
Process the ingredients until you have a smooth sauce.
Chop off the end of the butternut squash and use the end without seeds.
Peel the butternut squash and cut into quarters.
With a spiralizer make the butternut squash into spaghetti.

Put the butternut squash spaghetti into a bowl with the sauce and toss together.

Serve with lemon olives, black olives and/or chopped red pepper on a bed of fresh green leaves.

If you need a spiralizer, you can get one here on Amazon – they’re cheap and easy to use plus children love to use them too 😊 Or you can use a potato peeler to make tagliatelle style ribbons.

So there you have it, a simple yet deliciously vibrant meal for autumn…
