Ingredients

Butternut Squash Sauce

Almond Oregano Topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. While oven is preheating, peel and dice squash, onion, and garlic
  • Place almonds on baking sheet and roast for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized pot, bring all butternut squash sauce ingredients except nutritional yeast and salt and pepper to a low simmer. Cover and continue to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the squash is fully cooked.
  • While the sauce simmers, prepare the pasta according to package instructions. We recommend salting your pasta water for this recipe. Drain and set aside.
  • Chop almonds, add to small mixing bowl with olive oil and fresh oregano, add sea salt to taste.
  • Once the butternut squash is cooked all the way through, remove from heat and blend with immersion blender or regular blender. If you're using a regular blender you may have to wait until the sauce is cool enough to handle before blending.
  • Add the pasta to the sauce, add additional salt, pepper, or red pepper flakes to taste. Pour pasta into two bowls and top with almond oregano mix.
