Baked Squash Pasta Recipe

Thanks to Pinterest, our family had a delicious dinner last night, Baked Squash Pasta. I found the recipe earlier this week I  while I was searching to find a few new squash recipes. It looked fairly easy to make and after a quick trip to the grocery store to purchase the cheeses (found near the deli in the specialty cheese section) we decided to make it last night for dinner.

Baked Squash Pasta
 
Ingredients
  • 9 oz fresh pasta (I used fettuccine)
  • 10 oz butternut squash
  • 10 oz of hard cheese ( I used Parmesan, Fontina and Dubliner)
  • Garlic cloves
  • Fresh parsley ( bout 2 tbsp chopped)
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cook 9 oz fresh pasta.
  3. Shred the butternut squash and the cheeses.
  4. Finely chop a few garlic cloves and about 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  5. In a large bowl place the cooked and slightly cooled pasta, mix in the squash and about half of the cheese
  6. Add the garlic and parsley
  7. Place the mixture into a well buttered shallow dish
  8. Pour 1½ cups heavy cream.
  9. Top with the remaining cheese and bake in pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes, until the cream is absorbed and squash is cooked.
  10. Cool slightly and serve.

The Baked Squash Pasta was a big hit with the family. I never thought of mixing butternut squash with pasta, we normally just have squash either mashed or baked in cubes for a side. Although the Baked Squash Pasta was plenty for myself and the kids, my husband prefers meat or seafood at dinner as well. Next time I plan to serve it with a side of shrimp, or even with some baked chicken.

  1. Wow! This looks so good! I think it is a good recipe to try for people who are convinced they don’t like squash – this may change their mind! It is holiday-worthy! I can’t wait to try this!

  2. Looks great! Going to try it for dinner tonight, but doubling the recipe. I have tons of yellow squash in my freezer from a bountiful harvest this summer, so I’m going to use some with the butternut squash. My husband also prefers a heartier meal, so doubling should do the trick!

  3. This recipe sounds delicious, pasta, squash, cheese, how can you go wrong.
