Slow roasted butternut squash is exactly the fall flavor that we have been craving. We love a big bowl of butternut squash ravioli! However, making homemade ravioli can sometimes be a difficult process. We have just the solution…Parmesan and Roasted Garlic Butternut Squash Pasta! Not only will you get all of those great butternut flavors, but it is an easy dinner to throw together during the work week. Also, the leftovers make easy lunches to pack for the next day! This fresh and hearty butternut squash sauce would taste great on any kind of pasta. However, we just love the texture of a thick and silky pappardelle. Other great pasta options could include rigatoni, orecchiette, or even a whole wheat pasta. Whatever pasta you choose to use, you can enjoy knowing that you’re eating fabulously! We would suggest serving this delicious dinner with a fresh & vibrant side salad. Oh yeah…we forgot to mention that this dish is vegetarian as well! Eat more squash and stay fabulous y’all!
