Odyssey Feta Butternut Squash Noodles

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups spiralized butternut squash noodles
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 10 medium, fresh sage leaves
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 tsp ground fennel
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1, 6oz container Odyssey Traditional Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the spiralized squash noodles on the parchment and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Gently toss to coat with the oil.
  3. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Noodles should be al dente like pasta.
  4. While noodles are cooking, put 1 tablespoon oil into a skillet over medium high heat.  Add the pork sausage, fennel, and garlic.  Use a wooden spoon to break up the sausage as it browns.
  5. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly. Within 1-2 minutes the butter will begin to brown.  Add the sage leaves and carefully swirl it around the pan until they become fragrant and darken a bit.  Remove from heat.
  6. In a large bowl or serving platter, toss the cooked squash noodles, sausage, and cranberry feta in the browned butter.  Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
