Baked Pasta with Butternut Squash

Have sweet and savory in a single pot. Mix up your traditional pasta with sweet butternut squash. This versatile vegetable can be found at any grocery store or local farmers' market through the end of winter. The mild, earthy flavor of baked squash is enhanced with the addition of sage and nutmeg to make a savory-sweet entrée. A delicious one-pot meal, it's also an excellent source of vitamins A and C.

Ingredients:

1 package (16 oz.) whole-grain rigatoni pasta
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
5 shallots, sliced (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic minced
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 butternut squash (about 2 lbs.), peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
5 medium sage leaves, chopped (about 1 1/2-2 Tbsp.)
1 (14 oz.) can reduced-sodium vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups low-fat (1 %) milk (organic milk is better and raw organic is best of all)
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
4 Tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs

(As always, for the very healthiest versions of any recipe choose organic content as much as possible.).

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Cook pasta per package directions, but cut cooking time by 2 minutes since pasta will keep cooking in the oven. Drain and set aside.

  3. In medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add shallots and cook until golden, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and being careful not to burn. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Add squash and cook, covered, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Add sage and broth. Cook uncovered 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Add milk and heat through. Add grated nutmeg. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

  5. Meanwhile, spoon pasta into 9x13 ceramic baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese to pasta and toss until well mixed. Add squash mixture and mix well. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and remaining Parmesan.

  6. Bake 30 minutes or until center is hot and top is golden. If desired, drizzle an additional 1 tablespoon of high quality extra virgin olive oil over pasta before serving.
