Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Peel and deseed the squash, then cut it into mouthful-sized chunks and tip into a roasting tin. Peel the onions, leaving the root intact. Then cut each, through the root, into eight wedges and put them in the tin.
  2. Add the garlic to the tin with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, then toss everything together with your hands until all the ingredients are glistening. Roast for 30-35 minutes, until everything has browned nicely.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pan of salted water following the timings given on the packet. Drain the pasta, reserving about 4 tbsp of the cooking water. Remove the tin from the oven and add the cooking water and crème fraîche, stirring everything together lightly. Tip in the pasta and toss well. Serve with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan.

This is okay. Butternut squash and pasta is a rather stodgy combo.

This was easy to make and very tasty. I used sweet potato instead of squash and replaced the creme fraiche with sweet chilli Philadelphia for a bit of extra kick.

Gorgeous! I added some fresh sage to the squash. I'll definitely be making this again.

love this meal, very tasty, added some chorizo which added a nice spice as contrast to the sweetness of the veg!

I left out the cheese and added a tin of tomatoes, 1 tsp sugar and some tabasco
the sweetness of the veggies together is gorgeous, very tasty meal, will do again.
Could also add pieces of chicken to make more substantial

This has become a weekly staple since trying it. The roasted garlic and squash go so well with the pasta and the onion. Quick and easy to do...although why is peeling squash such a nightmare!

Thought this was just OK. If it wasn't for the parmesan on top, would have been very bland.

The perfect pasta dish for me. I loved the sweet flavors of the squash and onion. I could eat this until the cows come home and I don't even have any cows!

While this was tasty I have had better pumpkin/pasta combos... Won't make again in a hurry.

Wow! Really one of those Wow meals! The smell from the kitchen was good ... the taste exceptional. I love the combination of sweetness from the red onions combined with the butternut squash against the garlic. This meal is fantastic and so easy to make. I thoroughly recommend it.
