Bacon and Squash Pasta

Have I mentioned how much I love fall food? ;)  Well, the other night I decided to rev up our spaghetti with a fall favorite: butternut squash.  And since everything is better with bacon, I added that in as well!  This was a delicious dinner and it's really easy to make.

What you'll need for two hungry people:
Spaghetti (about half of one box... maybe a little more)
1/2 of a large butternut squash, chopped into small pieces
1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
4 slices thick cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
olive oil

Combine the bacon, squash, and onion in a pan and toss with olive oil.

Roast until the veggies are tender and the bacon is a little crispy. (about 20-30 minutes at 400)
While the vegetables and bacon are roasting, make the pasta.  I used spaghetti, but you could really use whatever pasta you'd like.  Drain the pasta and set aside.  Once the food is roasted, add the pasta back into the pot and toss with the roasted vegetables and bacon.  And of course, add some fresh parmesan to top off the dish.  Delish!


  1. I've never been a huge fan of squash, but I haven't had it in ages. I'll have to give it a try again because this looks delicious!

  2. Alena- I'm a huge fan (obviously), and bacon makes everything taste better! :D

  3. o wow - my boyfriend would die for this!
