Prep Time   10min Cook Time   15min Serves  2

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash, spiralized
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup California Dried Plums
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 10 ounces diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Optional garnish: goat cheese, bacon slices, parsley

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400°F.  Toss the butternut squash noodles with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and spread out on a baking pan. Roast for 10-15 minutes, until squash is al dente.  Meanwhile, puree the dried plums in a food processor with 1 tablespoon of water until smooth.  Heat the other teaspoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic, tomato sauce, and diced tomatoes. Add the oregano, onion powder, salt, red pepper flakes, balsamic vinegar and pureed plums.  Stir and cook through for about 4-5 minutes.  Remove the noodles from the oven and divide onto two plates.  Pour the sauce over both dishes and serve!  Optional garnish: crumbled goat cheese, bacon and chopped fresh parsley.
