Winter squash pasta

Recipe by:Andy Powning


  • 1 medium squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ stick of butter
  • Leaves from one bunch of sage
  • 1 pound of pasta (whatever your favorite is)


Peel 1 medium squash, cut in half, seed and cube. Place on roasting pan, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast for 45 minutes (or until soft and slightly caramelized) in pre-heated 425 degree oven, turning every 15 minutes or so.

Heat ½ stick butter in heavy frying pan until bubbling; add leaves from one bunch of sage, cook until crisp-about 5 minutes. Reserve butter. Place leaves on paper towels. Cook 1 pound of your favorite pasta, drain, toss with reserved butter, plus a tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss in squash and sage leaves. Finish off with a healthy helping of grated cheese. (Parmesan or Romano would work the best).
