Fresh made pasta sounds so dreamy to me. As much as I’d love to have the time to whip up some fresh pasta, time is not a friend of mine with a busy family. We have 2 kids going in different directions all the time, an International student and my own activities. This recipe for pasta with butternut squash and fresh rosemary is delicious, simple, and easy to make during the busy work week.
With Fall being one of my favourite seasons, I look forward to the harvest vegetables like squash being ready available in all shapes and sizes. Butternut squash is one of those vegetables that plays nice with many other flavours and pairs exceptionally well with fresh rosemary and brown butter.
Use good quality olive oil whenever you can and the freshest rosemary you can find. You can prepare the squash the night before, just reheat a little before adding to pasta.
Garnish with some red pepper flakes if you like and have on hand for a touch of zing, toasted pine nuts, and a bit of shredded Parmesan cheese.
