Another day, another squash to try. This time, Delicata!
On Saturday, after all of my cleaning, re-organizing, and re-decorating... I decided to make myself a nice dinner. I knew I wanted to roast up the delicata I had bought earlier in the week, but, wasn't quite sure how I wanted to prepare it yet. Well... I always love my pasta soooo... I decided to go with it.
This was really easy.
First, cut the squash in half and drizzle with extra virgin o/o, salt, grated nutmeg, and Parmesan. I read a recipe that added cream to the mixture, so I decided to pour in a little almond milk. Roast on 375 for about a half hour.
Remove from skin and put into the food processor. In a separate sauce pan... heat up some sage, extra virgin, salt, and a tiny pad of butter. Then, add it to the food processor with the squash.
Hit start and let it get smooth and creamy.
Pour it over hot protein plus (or whole wheat) pasta (leaving a littttle bit of the pasta water in the pan. Mix it around, top with some Parmesan and serve!
Delicata squash is a great source of vitamins A and C, and minerals iron and calcium!
Make it a GREAT week! xo
