1 bag of Miracle Noodle (Ziti or Spaghetti)
1 large butternut squash
Coconut oil or olive oil
1 cup of chicken stock
2 ounces of goat cheese
2 ounces of Parmesean Cheese
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
Salt and pepper
*Optional: Bacon, spinach, scallions
1.) Preheat the oven to 400F.
2.) Cut the end off the butternut squash and then slice it down the middle. Remove seeds from the inside and then place the squash on a baking sheet. Spray it with coconut or olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for around an hour or until tender.
3.) While squash cooks, prepare Miracle Noodle: Rinse for one minute, boil for 2 minutes, drain and then return to an empty hot pan. Move noodles around till all water is absorbed. Set aside.
4.) Blend the roasted squash with one cup of chicken stock, goat cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and a bunch of salt and pepper.
5.) Take your blended sauce, and fold in your Miracle Noodle. Add optional ingredients if you desire!
