How This Nourishes Your Body
Butternut Squash Sauce? Yes, and it is amazing and creamy!
What started out to be butternut squash mash ‘potatoes’ quickly turned into a delicious sauce as I kept adding more coconut milk and realized it started looking like a creamy dressing. I was making zucchini noodles with broccoli and ground turkey that night and had the idea or pouring this creation all over. Verdict: We loved it! It looks like a cheese sauce and brings beautiful color and sweet taste and texture to our ‘pasta’ dish!
