Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta


Creamy Squash Pasta

Sorry for the quietness around these parts. I've had a horrible flu type virus since I got back from Disneyland Paris which completely knocked me out (I blame the recycled air on the plane). Thankfully, I've woken up feeling lots better today so hopefully I'm over the worst of it! The last time I felt so rough was when I had Swine Flu about 6 years ago. Not nice! Anyway, on to the recipe......

This is a beautiful vegetarian pasta dish but was enjoyed by all the meat lovers too! The butternut squash makes a lovely silky smooth sauce for the pasta, with the sage, garlic and parmesan giving it lots of extra flavour. This is a pasta dish I could eat over and over again.

The dish does take quite a long time to make as you have to roast the butternut squash first, but I promise you wont be disappointed. Perhaps one to try at the weekend?
