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).

It’s all of the colors, and flavors, of fall nestled into one delicious dish. Sweet from the golden raisins and dried cranberries, and savory from the onions, tender butternut squash, and toasty pine nuts. It’s also well spiced, with the added cinnamon and those salty, brined lemons. — Chew Nibble Nosh

Much of the flavor for this pasta starts from a basic medley of garlic and onions sautéed in butter. This simple combination of ingredients provides lots of oomph with little fuss. Fresh kale is then tossed into this mix while the butternut squash is baked with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until it's fork-tender. The splash of cream used in this dish is flavored with a couple of fresh sage leaves, salt, and pepper — that's it! — Mon Petit Four
These latkes are easy to make, have a beautiful orange color from the butternut squash, and just a hint of sweetness from the maple syrup-spiked mascarpone.
Butternut squash soup is pretty simple. So I like to jazz it up with a few accessories. And what could be better than a little smoked bacon and fried sage? — Vindulge

Butternut squash during this time of the year is lovely because it just so happens that it's a vegetable that pairs quite well with fall spices like nutmeg and earthy herbs like thyme and sage. This soup epitomizes the best of fall. While butternut squash may not look like something you'd want to bite into at first glance, once it's cooked, it becomes tender and delicately sweet, almost like a sweet potato. — Mon Petit Four
