Butternut Squash Noodles

They make a great side dish, but my favorite way to enjoy them is topped with a quick Beef Ragu, a Bolognese Sauce Stoganoff Meatballs, or my favorite, Italian Beef and Spinach Meatballs.

Roasted Spiralized Butternut Squash Noodles are a healthy pasta alternative or side dish that only takes about 10 minutes to roast in the oven.

Tommy is not a fan of zucchini noodles, but he loves butternut squash noodles. The best part is they only take about 10 minutes to cook and they don’t get soggy like zucchini, although they do tend to get soft and break if you cook them too long.

The top straighter part of the butternut is the only part that can be spiralized as the bottoms part with seeds is not solid and therefor it would not work. Save the bottom part for Roasted Butternut and Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Breakfast Burrito Bowls, or to add to these Vegetarian Butternut Enchiladas. For this recipe you’ll need one large butternut for two people. The top part that gets spiralized should be about 20 ounces once trimmed and peeled.

Butternut Squash Noodles Tips

  • You will need a sturdy spiralizer to cut this into noodles, a cheap hand held spiralizer won’t work. I prefer to use the thickest noodle blade of my spiralizer, if you have the Inspiralizer, (affil link) it’s blade D.
  • Roast them in a single layer, you will need two sheet pans.
  • You can buy them pre-cut, or for meal prep cut them ahead and refrigerate in ziplock bags for up to 4 to 5 days.

    I have yet to try butternut squash with my sprializer. Thanks for this, definitely going to use this recipe when I try it!

  2. I'm curious about the SP values, wouldn't it be just 1 point per serving for the oil being used since butternut squash is zero points? Does anyone know if she bases her SP on the WW recipe builder or just uses the nutrition facts to calculate?

      If you're concerned about fat or calories, make a low fat version using fat free half and half or even skim milk, but thickened with xanthan gum(must do this with a blender or food processor, or lumps)and some parmesean. there's even a fat free parmesean now, it's not bad, but weirdly, on pasta, I seem to inhale some and cough.I call my low fat alfredo sauce, afraido sauce, but it's actually good.

  3. You CAN Spiralise the bottom! Cut the top so you have exposed the seeds, and scoop it out, then use the flat blade from the spiralizer. It will make wide fat noodles like a Pappardelle.

    What a great idea. We make zucchini noodles all the time, but it had never occurred to me to try butternut squash. My spiralizer isn't quite as nice as the one you have pictured but it should still work. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this tonight as a most delicious vegie side dish. Definitely a keeper recipe! Like zoodles, but loved this dish. One would never guess that it was butternut squash. Tasted almost like yams. We were ready to lick the serving dish clean! Thanks, Gina for all your delicious recipes!

    I have a Pampered Chef Spiralizer, yes I sell Pampered Chef. I love this recipe. Thank you for sharing. Marie

  8. Never would have thought to put butternut squash in one of these, but the idea sounds perfect! I might even be able to get my husband to eat this stuff now!

    Thank you for the questions and response on which part of the squash to use for this recipe. I just got my first spiralizer and used it on this dish and it turned out great!

  10. You suggest to use only the top half of the squash. I am not sure what you mean by top. A butternut squash is pear shaped. Do you open it first and remove the seeds?

    1. From the recipe: "The top straighter part of the butternut is the only part that can be spiralized as the bottoms part with seeds is not solid and therefor it would not work. Save the bottom part for soup or another use."

      The top is where the stalk is or would be (it may already be mostly cut off before the squash is sold).

  11. Could use the round part to make Butternut Squash Fries. Just saw a recipe on Yummly posted by Divalicious. They look yummy and healthy.

  12. Gina, you used to recommend the Paderno brand spiralizer (which I then purchased) and now you are recommending this other brand. Which blade do we use on the Paderno brand to get this noodle? Thanks.

    This looks great Gina. I purchased the Paderno one that Gina recommended. I'm excited to hear you are coming out with a new cookbook, can't wait till pre-orders are available. I bought three last time, one for me and two gifts. Hoping to also see more recipes using the zoodles!!!Thanks Gina!!

  14. Looks like an Inspiralized spiralizer (inspiralized.com). Same one I have and it's great! I just did this same thing and the noodles (and the dish I made) were amazing. 🙂

    1. I bought that same one you advertised and its junk dont waste your money get a better one not worth the aggravation

        I agree, that spiralizer is terrible , wouldn’t stick to counter kept moving!! don’t bother

    2. I don't know which one you got but the " INSPIRALIZER" is far from junk. Granted Amazon does sell Junk Spiralizers I have gotten 2 but not the INSPIRALIZER THE SUCTION THAT KEEPS IT FROM SLIPPING is the best the dial a blade is the most best. It's easy clean an compact. I just got my daughter one. Can you tell I like it and use it about 4 or 5 times a week.

    3. I agree, the Inspiralizer is excellent and can't be beat. I had the Paderno and it's good but replaced it with the Inspiralizer and love it even more. I gave several for Christmas gifts and everyone who received one hasn't stopped raving. I also go to the Inspiralized site for recipes and can't recommend them enough. I am just a follower and don't receive any personal gain or know the person who is responsible for this amazing gadget but feel passionate enough to share my thoughts.

    4. I bought a cheap one just in case I didn't like it. I bought the 'oxo' spriralizer from Bed Bath & Beyond. I think it was $20 (Cdn) before the coupon. It's very compact. You rotate the vegetable with your hand and after spiralling a whole zucchini, you get pretty sore.
