Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs butternut Squash, cubed
  • 1 lb Trottole Pasta
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, plus sprigs for garnish

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine the butternut squash, dark brown sugar, olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss to coat the squash evenly. Pour into a roasting dish, cover with aluminum foil and roast for 45 – 60 minutes.

  • 3 When the pasta has cooked, strain and return pasta to the cooking pot remove the roasted butternut squash from the oven and place a 1/4 of the butternut squash into the pot with the pasta (these are chunky bits for the final dish).
