A classic Carbonara recipe gets a lightened-up twist by using butternut squash noodles instead of spaghetti. Starting with Prego Alfredo Sauce, then adding bacon and onion, makes it easy to create a classic Carbonara flavor profile. Lemon and sage add a unique flavor twist that pairs perfectly with the butternut squash noodles for an easy dinner that is not only delicious but also a good source of fiber and provides a full serving of veggies.
