Sweet potato noodles with creamy cashew sauce

Butternut squash noodles and cashew cream

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a bit of a late adopter to the spiralizing party – mainly due to the fact that the spiralizer I bought appears to chew up veg and spit it out in an unappetising heap, rather than beautifully curled noodles.
