Just because it's not pretty doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a post! (Easy Squash Noodle Dinner)

This post is old because I think it looks funny.  And then I remembered how good and easy it was so I decided to draft and publish it.  This involved  one of my favorite activities, brainstorming about what to make from a Hollygrove market box!  And now I have a new veggie I like to make noodles out of, squash!

This was very simple and easy.  Brown some chicken, spiralize squash, saute with veggies and stir in cheese and herbs, so simple!  And more flavor than you think!  I think maybe adding a little stock or milk to the cheese to make it more "saucy" may be a good idea but it was really fine the way it is. The tomatoes kind of make a sauce too.  

Check this out, make noodles out of your favorite veggies and play!  What is your favorite?  I like the squash here but I think sweet potato ones are my new favorite. Full recipe to follow the montage.
