Pot (small), Oven, Stovetop, Colander, Immersion blender
Wash the squash & cut it in half lengthwise.
Scoop out the seeds. Slice, then cube the squash, leaving skin on.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cubed squash & cook for 20 min, or until fork tender.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
When the squash is ready, drain & set it aside.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to the same pot over medium heat. Then add the minced or crushed garlic. Cook for 1 min, stirring frequently.
Add the squash, salt, pepper, cream & half the parmesan to the pot.
Stir until the mixture becomes creamy. If too thick, add a little water. Remove from heat.
Using an immersion blender, blend the squash mixture until it's a smooth purée. Add the cooked, drained pasta to the butternut sauce.
Serve topped with the remaining parmesan. Yum!
