{butternut squash, steak + sweet potato pasta}

At the market on Tuesday I found the vendor Nellies Noodles. They were selling a few varieties of handmade pastas so I picked up the sweet potato one to try out. Since I'm still using what is on hand and the few things I picked up from the market, I chose to pair it with some roasted butternut squash and pieces of steak cooked with some stubbs marinade. It couldn't have tasted more delicious. The textures were very smooth and it was incredibly savory.

{butternut squash, steak + sweet potato pasta}


butternut squash
thyme (or other spice like basil or oregano)
stubbs marinade (or your own special seasoning)


Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Halve the butternut squash. Brush with olive oil and dash with some salt, pepper and thyme. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes or until fork soft.

Heat a pan on medium heat and add in some stubbs. Cook to your likeness and set aside.

Once the butternut squash is done, remove skin and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Boil pasta, drain and plate. Add desired amount of squash and steak. Top with grated parmesan cheese and enjoy the savory dish.
