Better Homes and Gardens Butternut Squash Bake

To say that pasta is a popular dish in my household would be an understatement. My two boys absolutely adore any dish containing pasta, and oftentimes will only eat the pasta, picking around the vegetables and other ingredients. Since pasta is a such a popular item in my household, I try to incorporated as many vegetables as I can for taste and variety. Recently Better Homes and Gardens magazine had a special insert with a recipe for Butternut Squash Bake, which looked perfect for the fall season.

This recipe has 12 ingredients and takes approximately 30 minutes to prepare and 40 minutes to roast and bake. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store. I did find that I could only find giant butternut squash, so I used the squash for two recipes, this dish and butternut squash chili. The panko was easy to find, so I used it instead of plain soft bread crumbs. I followed the remainder of the recipe as stated.

Butternut squash is one of my favorite winter squash, so finding a pasta recipe incorporating it excited me. I found the dish to be a little on the sweet side, I recommend adding crushed red pepper to accent the flavor. This addition would balance the flavors well. This recipe is a great way to use winter squash currently available at local farmers markets.

For the recipe go to Butternut Squash Bake.


  1. Thanks for the recipe. I have a couple of spaghetti squashes I need to bake up. I really wanted to get some butternuts but never cooked them myself so thanks for the recipe.

  2. I love pasta. Any kind and with anything :) So, thank you for the recipe!

  3. The recipe looks wonderful! This must have been the year for spaghetti squash- I still have five from our garden that I need to cook.
