Butternut Squash Fettucini Alfredo

It's been a while since I did a new recipe! (or maybe took the time to blog a new recipe.)  Lately, I have gotten into selling things through our town's Buy, Sell, Trade page on Facebook. 
I even sold our CAR!! (seriously-I posted the pics and description and in less than an hour a couple was at our house and they bought it!!) 
Anyway, so while perusing Buzzfeed I found several delicious looking pasta recipes. 

I HAD to try this one! 
Butternut Squash Browned Butter and Rosemary Fettucini Alfredo
The recipe promises it'll be ready in 30 minutes (and it was!), that it's a lighter version of Fettucini Alfredo, and has lots of flavor. All promises delivered!

Here's the recipe:

  • 16 oz. whole wheat fettucini noodles (or any other whole grain pasta you want!)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 cup chicken stock (or vegetable stock or, in a pinch, water)
  • 3 cups prepared diced butternut squash (about 1/2 a large squash)
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Cut up Butternut squash. This is about 1/2 of a large squash. This is about 3 cups.
You can look at my previous post on how to prepare the squash.

4 tablespoons of butter and a small onion chopped

1 tablespoon of Rosemary finely chopped

Allow butter to get nice and brown, and onions cooked to translucent before adding the Rosemary and about a cup of Chicken Broth

Add the cups of butternut squash and cook on medium high heat for about 10 minutes till soft. 
Meanwhile, make your pasta. I had on hand regular Spaghetti noodles but you can use any. The recipe uses a Fettucini Noodle but these are just as delicious!

Once soft, mash with a potato masher.
Add one cup of milk, salt and pepper, heat milk through and then use an immersion blender to make smooth.  (If you don't have one you can use a food processor.)

Pour over noodles.
The flavors are so wonderful! The browned butter, rosemary and the squash. YUMMM
I also took it to work for my dinner and it reheated beautifully!

If you want- you can eat it as a soup!  

Thank you Buzzfeed! I can't wait to try more of their recipes!
