Butternut Squash Spaghetti w/ Pistachio Sage Pesto

For the Pesto:
1 cup fresh sage
2/3 cup raw pistachios (pecans are good too)
1/3+ cup olive oil
1 clove crushed garlic
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. rawmesean cheese (or nutritional yeast)
For the spaghetti:
1 small butternut squash, peeled
olive oil to taste
sea salt & freshly cracked pepper
Put all ingredients for the pesto into a food processor and pulse until well combined. (A blender will work fine if that is what you have). Store pesto in an air tight container until ready to use.
Spiralize or julienne peel a butternut squash to create spaghetti noodles. Toss the noodles in a bit of olive oil, salt & pepper to bring out the richness in flavor and to soften the squash.  Coat the the noodles with the sage pesto and serve. Garnish with fresh sage and a dusting of rawmesean cheese.

Set another placesetting at the table for ME today! : )
Licking the screen!
I would totally be up for this meal - that is if I had either electricity OR water. So another night of baba ganoush collard wraps for me! Maybe this wil be the celebratory meal when the power's restored!

That spaghetti looks great.
Something I probably would have not tried without seeing your video...Now I will make this soon! Thanks for another great video!
I am a big fan of that pie! I brought one to a raw potluck last weekend and everyone LOVED it. I like it because only has a few ingredients so people who eat simply can enjoy it. it's also nut-free, seed-free, and agave-free. yippee!

those noodles look so good! I've been too scared to try raw squash but i might try a bite with that recipe. thanks for sharing.
Will try the butternut-sage recipe this week!
Another great Foodie Friday video. Thanks Penni!! :)
I'm a week behind. I just made the Asian Carrot Avocado Salad. Very, very tasty! And some left to take to work for lunch! That Spirooli machine is pretty awsome looking. I finally replaced my food processor and that made food prep so easy. Also made a saur kraut from the Earth Mother site. Trying all kinds of new things! Thanks for your inspiration.
I love the Cafe Gratitude book - hope to eat there someday!
Omygolly this looks delish!
I am going to try grating the squash since I don't have a spiralizer yet.... will that work?
Yes, or you can get a julienne peeler which works great too!

Both of these look amazing! That spirooli (sp?) is pretty cool looking!
