How to Make It

  1. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the garlic and a big pinch of salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Transfer to a bowl or plate and add another drizzle of oil to the pan.
  3. Add the squash noodles and cook, tossing with tongs, for a few minutes.
  4. Add the spinach and cream and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach wilts and the squash is al dente, like regular pasta.
