Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

 

 

 

Creamy butternut squash pasta made with roasted butternut squash, garlic and parmesan. The thick and creamy sauce (that's pretty hard not to eat straight from the bowl) is tossed with penne pasta for a quick and incredibly delicious dinner the whole family will enjoy!

Ingredients


  • 14 oz (400g) penne pasta
  • 1 lb (500g) butternut squash
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes plus extra for garnish ( if desired)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 1/4 cup (20g) freshly grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper , to season
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • small handful of basil , to garnish


 

Instructions

1.      Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350F/gas mark 4.
2.     Cut the skin off the butternut squash and cut into medium-sized cubes. Place on a baking tray with the garlic cloves (skin still on). Sprinkle over the oregano, red pepper flakes, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. 
3.     Add the olive oil and rub over the squash with your hands so the squash and garlic are evenly coated in the spices. Roast in the oven for around 30 minutes until the squash and garlic are soft, toss halfway through.
