Megan’s Comments:

You will love this. Super easy and you can make it your own in so many ways!

All you need is:

  1. Some kind of gluten free pasta: I love using zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash but will also work with quinoa pasta.
  2. Get the butternut squash sauce recipe here.
  3. What ever veggies you wish!

That is it! Dinner. Full of vegetables. Using whatever you have in the fridge. My kind of dinner.

Notes: I love sauteing the veggies in ghee or coconut oil with some sea salt. Adding onion and garlic to the veggies mix would also be delicious!

Dr Jockers Comments:

I grew up eating pasta 2-3 times per week.  We know that traditional American pasta is highly inflammatory as it is just processed grains that are high glycemic.  This is a grain-free, unique pasta recipe that is awesome!

The butternut squash sauce recipe is loaded with healthy fat sources in the grass-fed butter and coconut milk along with a nutrient rich safe carb in butternut squash.  It also contains garlic and turmeric for more anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory power.

You can use zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash noodles or even kelp noodles.  If you are still consuming grains you can try brown rice or quinoa pasta but these are both higher in carbs and more inflammatory.

Enjoy!
