ButterNut Squash Pasta Sauce

The house smelt like October
generally we like Butternut Squash
on pasta? I wasn't sure
But let's try it

I found the recipe here

I first roasted garlic
cut the tops off
drizzle olive oil

roast @ 350
for about half an hour
it should look like this
when it's done

while the garlic is roasting
you need
a medium Butternut squash
olive oil (I use grape seed oil)
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
(you can use chicken stock but we had vegetarians for dinner)
whole wheat spaghetti
1 1/2 cups reserved liquid from pasta

poke the squash all over
put in microwave for 2 minutes
it will soften it a bit
so it's easier to cut
peel the squash
with a veggie peeler

slice the top off
cut the bottom part in half
scoop out the seeds

cut up the squash
have your helper
help you

season with salt & pepper

add the oil
for a bit

have your photographer document it

he's not cheap

put your helper to work
while it cooks

add the stock
bring to a boil
cook until tender

when tender
put in food processor
add 6-8 roasted garlic cloves
we really like garlic
it's good

process until smooth
I thought it was a bit lumpy
once I added the starchy liquid
it smoothed out
it looked great

our company came
I forgot to take a pretty picture
this is my plate half way done

Go....make it
eat squash

our company had a buddy for our little man
they like each other
and spiders
plenty in common
it was very cute

We all had a fantastic walk
these two grownups are so cute
my kidlets love them
so do we
they shine God's love and goodness
it comes through every pore

update on cast girl
she can do anything
with a smile
I love her so

very odd thing happened
a swarm of bees
1000's of them
came through our yard
here is a close up
to give you an idea


  1. hey look its Mini-Phil and Mini-Will!!! LOL too cute. And I don't like that swarm of bees. eek! I'd run inside too... yowzers! Never seen anything like it. Strange.

  2. You have a cute little kitchen helper! I'm happy that my kids seem to like garlicky dishes as much as I do! That pasta/squash dish sounds yummy!
