  • Combine Neufchatel cheese, chile peppers, and milk in a blender; blend until sauce is smooth.

  • Heat sauce in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through, 2 to 4 minutes; pour over squash mixture.

Cook's Note:

The Neufchatel cheese and milk will tame the hot green chiles. If you want more of a kick, use jalapenos.

Editor's Note:

Use a spiralizer or vegetable peeler to cut the vegetables into noodle shapes.
