Quick Butternut Squash and Onion with Bowtie Pasta

Submitted by: NANATOTEN

Introduction

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 large butternut squash, peeled and cubed into about 1" cubes
    1 large onion, sliced in half, then sliced into 1/2 moons
    3 cups cooked al dente bow tie pasta, whole wheat if you can find it
    1/4 cup olive oil
    salt and pepper

Directions

TIP: I USE A SMALL BOWL JUST BIG ENGOUGH THAT IT WILL HOLD THE SQUASH UPRIGHT, WHILE YOU HOLD ONTO THE TOP. PLACE BOWL ON A COOKIE SHEET WITH SIDES, AND START TO RUN YOUR VEGETABLE PEELER FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM. TURN OVER TO GET THE SPOTS YOU MISSED. ALL THE PEELINGS GO ONTO THE COOKIE SHEET AND NOT ALL OVER YOUR COUNTER.

SINCE MOST OF THE SEEDS ARE IN THE BOTTOM, CUT THE SQUASH IN HALF CROSS-WISE. SPOON OUT THE SEEDS AND CUT ALL INTO CHUNKS.

Put the squash on the cookie sheet with sides, top with the onions, drizzle with the amount of olive oil you desire (you don't have to use 1/4 cup - use how much you desire). Sprinkle with salt and pepper, I used quite a bit of salt.
Stir after one half an hour, then cook until tender and onions are carmelized. Put into a serving bowl and add the pasta. I scraped off all the oil I could get off the pan, but add more oil if you wish. I served warm, but it was good cold too.

  • I found another recipe and it said to cook in oven at 400 for 10 minutes, stir and do that every 10 minutes for 30 minutes cooking.
    This pasta is really good. Easy to make outside of peeling squash but your tip was very helpful! - 10/13/10
