|Number of Servings:||Serves 4-6|
|Ingredients:||1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed into bite-size pieces
1 small bunch fresh sage, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4½ ounces chevre, crumbled and at room temperature
1 pound pasta
Extra virgin olive oil to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
In a bowl, toss the butternut squash with some extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, sage, garlic, and nutmeg.
Begin boiling some water for the pasta. Roast the squash in a 400˚F oven, tossing once or twice until golden brown and the edges start to crisp (about 30 to 40 minutes).
Cook the penne (or pasta of your choice; orecchiette is great for this too) in salted water until al dente and drain.
Toss the hot pasta with the squash mixture and top with chevre.
