Butternut Squash Noodles with Beef, Mushrooms, Peppers and Onions

At Smugs Fitness, we’re always experimenting with quick, healthy and simple recipes we can share with our community. A few weeks ago, Coach Kory (@trainwithkory) posted a delicious recipe, “Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon and Sage”. Coach Sam (@sammugavero) was inspired by Kory’s recipe and after doing some experimenting developed this delicious, healthy, and efficient recipe that can be prepared in a single pan in just 25 minutes!

INGREDIENTS

1 pound Lean Beef (I used Kebab Steak and cut into smaller cubes)

1 container / 10-12 ounces Butternut Squash Noodles (Veggie Noodle Co. are great!)

2 tablespoons Coconut Oil (or any healthy fat that's safe for high temperature cooking)

8 ounces Green Pepper, diced

8 ounces Onion, diced

10 ounces White or Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced

2 cloves Garlic, finely chopped

Salt and Pepper

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Brown the Beef over medium heat using half of the Garlic and 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Sauté the Mushrooms, Onions, Peppers, and the remaining Garlic for 3-4 minutes with 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil. Add the Butternut Squash Noodles and sauté for an additional 4 minutes until the noodles are cooked, but firm. Season with salt and pepper.

Return the cooked beef back into the pan with the Butternut Squash Noodles, Mushrooms, Peppers and Onions. Mix together and serve!
