Butternut Squash and Mushroom Pasta
Writer and Photographer Kyndra Kelly
There is nothing better than a warm, creamy plate of pasta in the fall time. The Boursin cheese in this dish adds such a depth of flavor, and creaminess unlike anything else! Boursin cheese is available at most grocery stores. Feel free to add protein of your choice to this dish. As-is, this recipe is vegetarian friendly.
1 cup cubed butternut squash
1 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
1/2 onion, sliced
1–2 cups fresh baby spinach
1 block Boursin cheese
8 oz. pasta of your choice
1 cup pasta water
In large pot, boil water to cook pasta. Cook as directed on package. Drain, saving 1 cup of pasta water, and set aside.
In large skillet, heat olive oil and add butternut squash. Caramelize for about 10 minutes, and then add mushrooms and onions.
Once cooked to your liking, add the entire block of Boursin. Stir cheese until melted. Add in cooked pasta, then pour pasta water in slowly until sauce becomes desired thickness. Stir in spinach. Serve, and enjoy!
