I’m obsessed with my spiralizer! It is my most used and favorite kitchen tool EVER! Tonight I strayed away from my usual zucchini noodles and spiced things up with butternut squash noodles instead. Added some shallots, green apples, cranberries, garlic, and almonds and then tossed it with a maple syrup/balsamic vinegar mixture. It’s like fall in a bowl.
