How to make Winter Squash Pasta Sauce
No need to mess with peeling squash in this recipe, simply slice the squash in half, scoop the seeds out, and bake in the oven with a little water in the pan to help the squash steam.
The squash can take up to 50 minutes to fully cook so use this time to sauté bacon and shallots, place them in a blender, along with parmesan cheese, broth and a little nutmeg.
