Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash
  • 4 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 cups cooked pasta
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds.
  • Using nonstick cooking spray, coat 1 side of 2 pieces of heavy-duty foil large enough to wrap squash halves. Wrap squash in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, or until tender.
  • Scoop out baked squash flesh and discard rind; rough-chop the squash.
  • Add olive oil, garlic, and onion to nonstick skillet and sauté for about 5 minutes until onion is transparent. (Alternatively, put oil, garlic, and onion in covered microwave-safe dish; microwave on high for 2–3 minutes.)
  • Remove pan from heat; stir in vinegar and oregano. Add squash; stir to coat in onion mixture. Add pasta and toss to mix. Season with salt and pepper and serve with parsley and cheese.
