Pasta with butternut squash and goat cheese

Recipe Ingredients for Penne with Butternut squash and goat cheese

2 pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 onion, diced into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon Olive oil, for drizzling
1 teaspoon salt and black pepper
1/2 pound penne pasta
7 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted (see Cook's Note)
1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan

Recipe Directions for Penne with Butternut squash and goat cheese

  1. Put an oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Spray a baking sheet, liberally, with vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside.

  3. Mix the squash and onion together and arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake for to 40 to 45 minutes until the vegetables are golden and cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.

  4. While the squash mixture is cooling, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and reserve about 2 cups of the pasta water. Put the pasta, goat cheese and 1 cup of pasta water in a large serving bowl. Toss until the cheese has melted and forms a creamy sauce. Add the squash and onion mixture, the walnuts and the basil. Toss well and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with Parmesan and serve.
