This sauce is so rich, and as per usual is a crowd favorite, and by the crowd, I mean a few of my friends who loved it and I couldn’t be happier by the results.

It is Pumpkin season and I am not mad about it.

The Method at a Glance

  1. Cook pasta according to package.
  2. While the pasta is cooking add chicken stock, butternut squash, half an onion, garlic cloves, sugar, salt and pepper on a medium-sized pot. Cook at low medium heat until butternut squash is tender.
  3. Once the squash is tender, transfer the liquid to a blender container. NOTE: Be careful as the liquid is hot, do not add too much liquid to the container. Do it by batches if necessary.

I love this recipe because it is simple and quick. Cooking something delicious does not have to be complicated.

If you are into pumpkin season and need something yummy to try that does not involve pasta I posted this Pumpkin Soup last year and it is, in fact, one of my favorite recipes on the blog (I know I say this often) but for real this soup is so good. You can serve this soup hot or cold.

To sum up, I LOVE FOOD which means I am in love with this recipe and I am pretty sure I’ll be making it often and that is ok. Carbs are so good and I love butternut squash PERIOD.

God Bless You!
