Butternut Squash & Sage Pasta

Butternut Squash & Sage Pasta

 

Autumn is made of a lot of cravings (at least my autumn is), and particularly food cravings.
lattes, nuts, pumpkins... there’s plenty of fall mouth watering treats !
And since I love pasta : why not make a fall pasta dish ?

Here’s my combination choice : Butternut Squash pasta with sage and pine nuts.

 INGREDIENTS

  • A whole butternut squash
  • Pasta of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp Sage leaves (dried or fresh). If you can’t find some : thyme works great too
  • 6 Tbsp Parmesan
  • Half a glass of Almond milk (or any of your choice)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • A pinch of Nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Pine nuts
  • 1 piece of broth in cube

 

 

1 – CUT & PEEL THE BUTTERNUT

First, you need to cut the butternut in half, so you can empty the seeds with a spoon. Next peel it, and cut it in pieces. In the meantime, bring some water to a boil in a pan.

 

2 – BOIL THE BUTTERNUT & BLEND IT

Once the butternut pieces are soft, drain the water out of the pan. Blend your butternut pieces in a blender, or with any other small appliance you might have to blend food.

 

3 – PREPARE THE SAUCE IN A PAN

Put the butternut purée you just made in a pan on low to medium heat. Add all the other ingredients, except the pasta and pine nuts : parmesan, sage (shred it with your fingers or a knife before), nutmeg, almond milk, salt & pepper, olive oil, and the cubed broth (choose the one you prefer, vegetables, beef, chicken … ).
Stir it until the broth has melted into the Butternut Squash pasta sauce.

 

4 – TOAST THE PINE NUTS

Toast the pine nuts at the end in a frying pan at medium heat, because it goes very fast and they cas easily burn. Let them sit for maybe less than a minute, and when one side is well toasted you can turn the heat off, and mix them around with a spatula so every side is toasted.

 

Your butternut squash pasta sauce is done !
Now make some pasta, and serve with the sauce topped with toasted pine nuts.
