  • Pinch red pepper flake
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

    Heat ghee or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes until fragrant, then add red pepper flake and spiralized butternut squash. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until noodles are soft, yet still retain their shape, approximately 10 minutes
