Squash & spinach fusilli with pecans
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this colourful low-fat, low-calorie squash and spinach pasta topped with pecans. It's tasty as well as healthy
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the butternut squash, garlic and sage in the oil, then spread out in a roasting tin and cook in the oven for 20 mins, add the courgettes and cook for a further 15 mins. Give everything a stir, then add the pecans and cook for 5 mins more until the nuts are toasted and the vegetables are tender and starting to caramelise.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, boil the pasta according to pack instructions – about 12 mins. Drain, then tip into a serving bowl and toss with the spinach so that it wilts in the heat from the pasta. Add the roasted veg and pecans, breaking up the nuts a little, and toss again really well before serving.
