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.
Season the squash as desired. Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the squash and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the sauce, broth, sage and lemon zest and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the lemon juice. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the bacon and parsley just before serving.
