Butternut Squash Cavatelli

Butternut Squash Cavatelli


Start by browning 2 tbsp butter in a small pan on medium heat, whisking constantly to avoid burning, until dark brown and reserved. This will develop a nutty flavor.

Cut 2 of the squash in half and place them face down on a sheet pan. Roast in the oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until soft. Remove squash from the oven and allow to cool.

Once the squash has cooled, scoop out the flesh with a spoon and discard the seeds and skin.

Using a blender, combine the squash, mascarpone and brown butter, and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Peel the last butternut squash and small dice it, transferring to a rimmed sheet pan. Roast at 350 degrees F until soft, about 5 minutes.

In a small pan on high heat, heat up canola oil and place your sage leaves into the oil to quickly fry them.

Boil a large pot of water and add salt to taste. Place the cavatelli into the water and cook for 3 minutes (or according to instructions). Strain and set aside.

In a separate larger pan, heat up the diced roasted squash with 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp of water. Add the cavatelli to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Allow the water to cook out.

In a separate pot, heat puree to desired temperature.

To plate, using a spoon, take a scoop of the puree and place it in a circle on your plate. Add the pasta and diced squash on top of the puree, and garnish with pumpkin seeds or walnuts, fried sage leaves and vincotto (optional).
