fettuccine butternut bake

Fancy Fettuccine Butternut Bake

This unusual recipe offers a twist on fettuccine Alfredo, incorporating butternut squash into the dish as well as various creamy ingredients and spices too. This unusual dish looks very simple on the plate, but add some fresh herbs as a garnish and you have in front of you something very elegant, something that would be perfect served at a dinner party perhaps, if you are in the mood for great Italian food but something a bit different.

Take one bite and you will be so pleased with the fantastic flavor. You can use leftover butternut squash to make this, or else roast or boil it until tender, then puree it in a food processor or use a potato masher to get it smooth. You can use pumpkin puree instead, if you wish. Fettuccine is perhaps an unusual pasta to use in a baked recipe, and you probably use macaroni, penne or another pasta shape when making pasta casseroles and cheese-topped bakes, but try fettuccine for a change here. As well as the pasta and butternut squash, the recipe features milk, butter and 3 kinds of cheese, for guaranteed creaminess, plus garlic, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and sage, to add aromatic hints. All these flavors work beautifully together, bringing a harmonious taste to the dish.

Serve this with a simple baby leaf salad or even some tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar for a flavor contrast. This baked fettuccine recipe is something you may tweak if you want, either by swapping the fettuccine for another kind of pasta, changing the butternut squash for pumpkin puree, or even adding some cooked shredded chicken before baking. Make this recipe your own, choose a tasty side dish, serve it hot from the oven, and you will have something really amazing. Continue reading
