  1. Peel butternut squash. Cut off bulbous end that contains seeds. Spiralize the remaining longer end of the butternut squash (I used Blade C on the Inspiralizer).
  2. Place a large pan over medium heat and heat the butter 4-5 minutes, or until brown.
  3. Add diced prosciutto and saute for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until prosciutto is crisp.
  4. Add sage and garlic and cook 1 minute.
  5. Add butternut squash noodles, tossing into the prosciutto mixture, then cover. Cook, covered, 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Done when butternut has become tender (like al dente pasta).
  6. Remove butternut noodles from heat.
  7. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs and parmesan.
  8. Off the heat, toss butternut noodles with parmesan egg mixture for 1-2 minutes, until fully combined and heat has cooked egg. If sauce is a little thick, try adding a little bit of water (1 Tbsp at a time) until it reaches desired consistency (I needed about 2-3 Tbsp water).
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy.
