Holy moly! I’ve been contemplating this one for a while and decided to give it a go. So glad I did!! The sweetness of the butternut and the savory of the garlic cream sauce play so nicely together. And it's easy to make with very little time investment. This would be great paired with your favorite seafood!

 TIP: buy your butternut squash pre-spiralized to save even more time!
