Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Pasta

Nothing beats butternut squash-- delicious and good for you. I’ve been on a butternut squash kick lately. Having just made soup with this super veggie only a few weeks ago, I went hunting for another recipe and found this one on the website: Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Pasta.
It’s sweet and smoky and cheesy—the perfect comfort food. I pretty much followed the recipe word for word, so I’ve included a link to it. However, I made a couple of adjustments:

  • used onion instead of shallot
  • added more than 3 cups of roasted squash
  • substituted a provolone/mozzarella blend for the sharp provolone (I couldn’t find just shredded provolone at the store)
  • wilted some baby spinach in with the onions before adding the cheese sauce & pasta
