Cozy and quick: Roasted butternut squash + pesto over pasta

Postby piedmontfields » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:39 pm

"Roasted butternut squash (cubes) + pesto over pasta"

The title says the recipe. If you like meat, add chopped bacon or sausage. It is also nice with a topping of sautéed kale or other greens.

When it is cold, this is one of my favorite recipes! Pistou (French pesto) was put up in the freezer from the summer.

This is one of my favorite butternut squash recipes. We have it with linguine and grill spicy/hot habanero pork sausage (Whole Foods) on the side. The sweetish squash/pecans compliment the hot sausage very well and the ricotta "smooths" the spiciness oh so slightly.

My aunt makes nearly the same dish -- roasted butternut squash tossed with pesto over mushroom ravioli.

Love reading the squash love. I first came to this dish after having a risotto with mushrooms and squash in Italy. It is just a great autumnal/winter combo.

p.s. I tried to put this in the Recipe thread, but that didn't work!

Is squash pumpkin? You're not talking about the little yellow things?

Flight, not the small yellow summer squash. Butternut is a type of winter squash. Pumpkin could also work. Other types of winter squash which are less sweet (Kabocha, Hubbard) would work, too.
