Baked Squash Pasta

By Greengirl @GrinGarl
Monday again. How was your weekend? Hope you had a wonderful one. Mine was great. Spend it with my family, with lots of indoor activities on Saturday and yeasterday we did some grocery shopping and went downtown for a walk. The weather changed overnight. After the sleet on Saturday yesterday there were about 70's and today it reached 84F. Hooray for the Spring!!After a weekend spent away from the kitchen, today I had to turn the oven on. Well, not exactly the dish you were expecting but still is baked. Probably you figured out I'm not that good as a cook, not that I'm a great baker, but I do OK. 
Baked Squash Pasta
This coming weekend is hubby's birthday. As usual, this week is all about him. This dish is one of his favorite way to eat squash. To be honest, it's kinda the only way he eats it, and sometimes in soup, but just sometimes. The sweetness of the squash makes a great pair with the salted cheese and all tight together by some pasta. This may not be your everyday pasta dish, but give it a try and let me know what you think. 
Let's turn the oven on and bake some squash pasta 
Baked Squash Pasta
Cook 9 oz fresh pasta al dente. I used a refrigerated package of fettuccine. Meanwhile, shred 10 oz butternut squash
