So I was having my backup meal tonight, which is pasta with red sauce. My default topping for pasta is typically broccoli [sigh]. Don’t get me wrong, I love broccoli, but sometimes you just don’t want something green. Well, I waltz into my kitchen, look to the left of my stove, and what do you know, I have a butternut squash sitting there, begging to be eaten! I was excited. Usually I roast the squash, which takes eons so I didn’t feel like doing it. Instead, I chopped the little guy up, threw on some salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano, and pan-fried em. The result, very tasty atypical pasta! The slight sweetness of the squash went very well with the salty red sauce. Yes, they look like home fries but don’t be fooled! Butternut squash season is basically over I believe but you should keep this in mind. They worked well by themselves as a finger food too.
