Butternut squash is one of the many versatile fall vegetables. You can make soups and salads, roast the vegetable, or have it with pasta. The vegetable goes really well with fresh sage and thyme because it has a sweet nutty taste that is very similar to pumpkin. With butternut squash you can make soup with a hint of honey and orange or roast the squash and have it with pasta. There are so many quick and delicious butternut squash recipes that you can make during a busy weeknight, which is why we made it the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
Here are this week’s highlights:
Autumn Spaghetti with Butternut Squash
The pasta is tossed in a sauce of garlic and onion butter then fresh kale is added in. Beeta Hashempour, blogger of Mon Petit Four, roasts the squash with salt, pepper, and olive oil, then adds that into the pasta dish with a splash of cream and sage. This combination of ingredients and flavors creates a wonderful autumn spaghetti with butternut squash.

When you go to the market and pick up butternut squash, the go-to is usually to make butternut squash soup. Mary Cressler of Vindulge blog adds extra flavor to a typically ordinary soup by topping it with smoked bacon and fried sage — that’s why she’s the winner of this week’s SWAT.
