How To Make Oven-Roasted Butternut
The creamy, buttery and rich butternut squash is my all-time favorite fall ingredient to cook with! I add it to just about everything – salads, soup and pasta. It’s such a versatile ingredient that goes well with just about everything, hence this delicious butternut pasta recipe! It’s also super easy to prepare in the oven! Make sure to watch my video recipe to learn how to peel, seed and cut a butternut squash. Cut the squash in equal sized pieces so they cook the same. Simply spread the squash single layer in a baking pan, season with oil and spices, cover and bake! It’s that easy! For a roasted finish, remove the foil from the pan and broil on high for a few minutes.
Then, I make the most incredible yet simple sauce with marsala wine, shallots, garlic, cream and loads of parmesan cheese and of course, so pureed squash. I like to puree about half of the squash for the sauce and leave the rest whole for more texture.
To add some protein and flavor, I used polish kielbasa for the recipe. This sausage is one of my favorites to use in pasta dishes – it’s flavorful and packs a smoky punch! I’ve also tried this dish with pineapple sausage – definitely give it a try if you’re a fan of pineapple! If you’re not a fan of sausage, try this recipe with cubed chicken breast – it will taste great, too!
