butter(nut) noodles

My kids love buttered rigatoni noodles. And in an effort to get more veggies into their meal, tonight I made a butternut squash sauce to go over their noodles. My son (the white eater) was at first a bit resistant, but when I told explained it was a “butter” sauce, he ate and enjoyed!


Butter(nut) Noodles- Combine 1/2 cup of butternut squash puree with a heaping spoonful of ricotta, 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, a splash of milk, Mrs. Dash to taste.

  4. I would never have thought of this…very interesting! We eat a lot of pasta, so this would be a good change-up. Thanks for posting!

  5. Oh my goodness, I made something similar last night. It was a recipe from Martha Stewart called Spicy Squash Pasta. That is so funny.

    What a great way for the kids to eat more veggies!!

  6. I’ve done something similar in the past and loved it. Butternut squash deserves a blue-ribbon for best tasting veggie that can do everything.

  7. Chou- I totally agree! Butternut squash can do anything!
