Butternut squash and roasted garlic pasta sauce

This recipe creates a simple and healthy pasta sauce.  This recipe can also be used to make soup by simply adding more cream or water whilst blending. 

  • 1 butternut squash (diced) 
  • 1 white onion (chopped in half) 
  • Handful of fresh garlic cloves 
  • Single cream
  • Fresh rosemary 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • Olive oil 
  1. Roast the diced butternut and onion on a baking tray after drizzling in olive oil.  Roast together with the fresh garlic and rosemary for around 25 minutes.  If you like you can also roast some chopped mushrooms as they go so well with this dish. 
  2. In the meantime boil some pasta. 
  3. Once the veggies have roasted, let them cool slightly before adding the onion, butternut, garlic and rosemary to a blender. 
  4. Once blended, add in some single cream, some pasta water and some more salt to taste and blend again.  It is up to you what consistency you like.  If I am just having this as a soup I'll add more cream and for a sauce I'll add less and keep it thick 
  5. Finally, mix the sauce with the pasta add your roasted mushrooms, parmesan and basil.
