Today’s Health-e-Recipe for Baked Pasta with Butternut Squash shows how versatile this squash can be.
Its bright orange color signifies lots of beta-carotene,a cancer-fighting antioxidant present in carrots and sweet potatoes. It is mild-tasting enough for savory flavors like the shallots and sage in this recipe, or to have a sweeter flair from orange zest, cinnamon and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
It can be pureed into a delectable soup, paired with poultry or used in a colorful side dish.
