Spaghetti with Butternut Squash adds seasonal flavor to a classic family-favorite meal—for under $1 a serving! This one-dish meal works equally well with linguine or penne.


How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. On baking sheet, toss squash with oil and 1/4 tsp. salt to coat. Spread squash in a single layer and roast until soft, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes.

Step 2

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook spaghetti until just tender, about 10 minutes, or as package label directs. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta cooking water. Return spaghetti to pot and add squash, butter and sage. Stir, adding pasta water as necessary to moisten. Serve immediately, topping with Parmesan.

Great recipe! I reviewed with instructions and pictures at my blog - I agree that the hardest part of the recipe was peeling the squash!

Hardest part was peeling the Butternut Squash. Someone gave me a big 3- 4 lb one right after Thanksgiving. That thing had some tough skin but Oh, So Good!
