It’s time to get some airtight jars. Seriously!
The perfect thing about this recipe is you can make a bunch of meals, store in the fridge for up to 4 days and simply cook in a saucepan when you’re ready.

Butternut Squash Noodles with Spring Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes
That’s right, butternut squash noodles!
If you don’t have a spiralizer, you could just as easily use a julienne peeler. Sometimes I prefer the latter as it’s quicker and less to clean.
