Following certain recipes can be misleading Like 0 Twitter Court's Cooking Blog Follow Dec. 2, 2016, 3:10 p.m. in Life and Styles Views: 666 Like us on facebook So last night was my first attempt at making this Creamy Butternut Squash Alfredo Pasta, and well lol my version of the dish, unfortunately, did not turn out 100% perfect like the way I wanted it too. Why you might ask??? because I put a little bit too much pasta into the pot and then it caused the sauce dry out. At first, I was a little upset, but then after awhile I thought to myself."Lol, oh well, I will not cook so many noodles the next time I prepare this dish." But, despite my small mistake, the preparation of the recipe overall was relatively easy, and it still was tasty. But as for my version being creamy not so much because I added so many noodles lol. Ha, I learned my lesson. Furthermore, I am very confident that when you choose to make this dish for you and your family, the outcome of your version will turn out excellent and way better than mine. Creamy Butternut Squash Alfredo Pasta Ingredients 4 strips of applewood bacon 2 Tbsps butter 1 C diced red onion 1 garlic clove 3 C butternut squash cubes 1 C low sodium chicken stock 1½ Tbsp fresh or dried sage 1½ Tbsp fresh or dried thyme 1 C. 2% milk salt to taste One (16 oz) box Barilla pasta (I used Linguine) Parmesan Cheese (Optional) Instructions 1. In a large skillet combine the butter and red onion. Saute until slightly soft, approximately one-two minutes. Next add in the garlic, saute for thirty seconds, stir and combine the butternut squash, chicken stock, sage, and thyme. Stir and cover. Cook until the butternut squash is fork-tender, about eight-ten minutes. When the squash is tender, combine the squash to a food processor along with the milk and salt to taste. Puree until smooth. 2. In the meantime heat a small skillet over medium-high heat, combine the diced bacon to the pan and saute until the bacon is crispy. About four-five minutes. When the bacon is finished cooking, place it on a paper towel lined plate to let the grease drain. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to directions, (six-eight minutes) do not overcook. Drain pasta and add butternut squash sauce to the pasta, gently toss together and top with crispy bacon. Serve!
