Pasta with Butternut Squash and Sauteed Leeks

Share:

I was first introduced to the heavenly butternut squash and sauteed leeks combo when making homemade pizzas at Saltbox Farm (add pancetta to elevate to an even higher cloud). I loved the combo so much that for this pasta dish, I made a pasta sauce with san marzano tomatoes, a touch of cream, then added the sauteed leeks and butternut squash. Yum! I might have to make this one a weekly staple.
