I have only recently been introduced to harissa. The spicy pepper based paste is a North African condiment that pairs well with meats and vegetables. It makes an exceptional sauce for butternut squash noodles.

I topped my noodles with delicious crispy brussels sprouts dehydrated in olive oil, salt and pepper. Yum!
