Roasted Buttenut Squash with Toasted Walnuts and Sage with Linguine


Are you ready for another Butternut squash recipe?  Here it comes. This recipe speaks of Fall. I love butternut squash, especially roasted, which caramelizes the squash and intensifies the sweet flavor. Add  a roasted onion and garlic, and toasted walnuts with the squash on the linguine and top with fried sage leaves and fresh Parmesan cheese, a bit of heaven!  This is a perfect meatless meal, if you're looking for one You really don't miss the meat, but you could always add some, if you wanted.. My husband just likes baked squash, and doesn't really care for this recipe, but that means more for me:)

I adapted this recipe from Seth Roth and Bryan Devlin at Oprah.com
  • 1 pound Linguine, or your favorite pasta
  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 2 medium onions, quartered  
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  •  3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 c. toasted walnuts
 *** Tip for peeling Squash***
Put squash in microwave for about 4 min. to facilitate peeling.  Once out of the microwave, the squash should be easy to peel with a vegetable peeler or knife.

Dice the squash into half inch cubes,. quarter onions, and peel garlic Place vegetables and garlic in 400 degree oven on baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed or greased, drizzle with olive oil,  and roast until soft. Roasting time will vary from 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the age of the squash. Remove from the oven and toss the squash, onions, and garlic with the chopped sage to infuse the flavor.

To toast walnuts, place in small frying pan with no oil, and heat over medium heats for a few minutes until nuts are lightly browned.  Be careful, because they can burn easily.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook until the pasta is al dente . Drain the pasta, then toss with the squash, onions,  garlic,  Parmesan cheese, and nuts.  (If the pasta seems too dry, toss with a little chicken or vegetable stock, or a bit of the pasta water.) Garnish with fried sage leaves and Parmesan cheese shavings. ( I did not fry my sage leaves.)

  7. I smiled at your first line because the comment that raced through my head was, "no, I don't like butternut squash." Of course, I can only base that on one recipe that I made from a magazine. I just need someone who really knows how to cook it to make me some (hint, hint).

  9. The vast majority of the foundations are moving their classes to online mode nowadays. Presently, when you track down the positive side of this, there is an immense negative side to this. In the event that it were a hypothetical subject, understudies could possibly complete this without any problem. However, Java is a programming language, and just functional classes can assist an understudy with procuring the subject. Presently under such conditions, assuming that you are searching for Java task help, you are not off-base! Understudies need to have ordinary classes to learn and manage the subject. However, with the far off learning process, the entire thing appears to be extremely intense for them. Thus, going for British Essay Writers is the most straightforward thing they can go for!

  10. On one hand; I am struggling in finding assignment proofreading service in USA and on another hand I am going through different blogs of recipes. This recipe especially caught my attention as I was craving something salty with the crunchy sweetness on it and what can be better than the roasted Butternut squash with toasted walnuts on top.
