Spice up butternut squash with cumin and chilli, then toss in crumbled goat's cheese to create a creamy, flavourful sauce for pasta that takes moments to prepare. Serve with a mixed-leaf salad. Delicious!
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Used different ingredients. I added some fresh chopped tomatoes at the end, also added some piri piri sauce cause i like things spicy and used cheddar cause i didnt have any goats cheese i know theyre quite different but still tasted great :D - 22 Mar 2011
Used different ingredients. I dry roasted some pine nuts which I mixed into the pasta at the end. I also added a little rosemary to the spice mix, as I find it goes really well with pumpkin, and the juice of one lemon. Once cooked I added some baby spinach, to give it a bit of colour. Garnish with some fresh basil. - 17 Jun 2009
I made this for a dinner party, as a few of the guests were vegetarian, and it went down a treat. I changed a few things (see tweak below) but, overall, a delicious dish. - 17 Jun 2009
