I have been craving a butternut squash sauce since fall hit us. I can’t even explain where my cravings come from sometimes, but I don’t question them and just go with it. So I gathered my butternut squash from my fall home decor and got busy in the kitchen. Yes you read that right…squash make great fall decorations, and the great thing is you can eat them when you’re done with them, it’s a win-win!
Butternut squash is such a versatile squash, and you can use it in so many different recipes. The flavour and texture makes it a perfect squash to substitute in any recipe that requires pumpkin. I’ve used it in my pumpkin spice loaf, in bread, puff side dishes, biscuits, and soup. Actually, I have to say that I made a pie using butternut squash puree, and honestly, it was better than any pumpkin pie I’d ever had. It was delicious. Anyway, let’s get back to this pasta. You’re going to want to try it.
So this pasta, let me tell you about it. First just have a look, is your mouth watering yet? This pasta is so creamy and delicious…it met all of my cravings. Spaghetti noodles and a creamy butternut squash sauce with flavours of sage and parmesan cheese. This was a dish that was loved by all members at my table, the kids devoured it!
For this particular dish I used butternut squash puree that I made from roasted squash, but you could also make it with boiled and mashed butternut squash. I just like the flavour of roasted squash better, I find it a bit richer and full, but if you’re pinched for time boiling it is fine too!
Then serve it over your favourite pasta, and with loads of extra parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
