Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta-AH-MAZING.

by Chelcie on October 11, 2011

My roommate/best friend said to me while inhaling eating this pasta dish… “this is one of the best things you’ve ever made” …then she proceeded to have 3 bowls and lick the bowl once she was finished. We don’t judge each other around here..I may or may not have done the same thing

Here’s what you’ll need

1 pound of pasta (I used whole wheat rigatoni), lemon hummus, goat cheese, (in the chopped veggie bag-1 white onion and 1 medium butternut squash), baby spinach,  and not pictured spices: salt, pepper, and dried thyme

Preheat the oven to 400 . Toss the onion and butternut squash with olive oil, salt, pepper, and dried thyme


Roast for 45 minutes, and toss the veggies about half way through the cooking process
Meanwhile, boil the pasta

Don’t laugh at my attempt to do action shots LOLz

And assemble the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl

Baby spinach, hummus, and goat cheese. If you don’t think you like goat cheese, I PROMISE in this recipe you do

Then add in the roasted squash and onions, followed by the cooked pasta

Then add a ladel of the water that the pasta was cooked in and mix it all together

And serve!
I added some crushed red pepper flake on top:)

SO AMAZING. This pasta is so creamy and comforting, but is also good for you too! Comforting and healthy dishes are my favorite to make:) And you know anything with hummus, goat cheese, and roasted vegetables is going to turn out AMAZING. please make this now.if you don’t we can no longer be friends
