Yellow squash also known as butternut squash adds elegance and a big flavor to this easy vegetarian vegan pasta dish.

This type of squash has a real meaty texture and can add a lot of flavor with added nutrition to any dish.

Pasta with butternut squash is a favorite when this vegetable is abundant specially in the late summer and Fall season. This veggie is ounce for ounce very nutritious and tasty.

Easy vegetarian pasta with butternut squash:

  • 1/2 butternut squash cut in chunks
  • Shell macaroni (you can actually use any type of pasta)
  • One bunch of fresh spinach with stems or you can use kale or any other green veggies like BokChoy, it will work too.
  • One whole head of garlic chopped or diced (it don't matter, the more garlic the better)
  • Olive oil for stir-frying the veggies.
  • Himalayan Sea Salt and cracked pepper to taste

Prepare the garlic, and the veggies separating them in a bowl. Boil the pasta according to package directions. Most folks like theirs al-dente. Boil them to what suits you. Drain when done and set aside.

In a wok or heavy fry pan, saute the chopped garlic in olive oil just until the garlic is soft. Add the cubed butternut squash and saute until they're tender. When the squash is soft and tender to your liking but not mushy, add the greens.

(The green veggies take no time to cook so you have to add them last to retain crispness.) Add the drained pasta and stir until everything is all happy together infusing each other's flavor soaking into the pasta. 

Season to taste with Himalayan sea salt and cracked pepper. Serve hot. You can stop here but if you really want some bread with it then go ahead and make your best semi-homemade garlic bread. 

It's a low cost vegetarian dinner. This meal costs merely a few bucks to make. We love it garlicky and it paired perfect with our semi vegetarian garlic bread.
