Butternut squash pesto pasta bake

Dificultad 1/5

I love pesto and butternut squash, and the other day I was thinking that if people make pesto out of tomatoes, why not make it out of butternut squash? I had in my kitchen this butternut squash which is slightly sweetier and nuttier than regular squash or pumpkin, so I decided to try it and it was AMAZING! I fell in love immediately. The result is soft, creamy, sweet, really nice. Use it with your pastas or why not some gnocchi. When making your pasta choice for baking, prefer ones with holes (like penne or shells) or ones with texture like the rigatoni I chose. This way they will catch the sauce 🙂 Continue reading Butternut squash pesto pasta bake

Incredible Bolognese sauce

Difficulty 2/5

My aunt (and godmother) does a death by lasagna recipe (and I mean DEATH). And what it’s all about is the sauce. So I thought what don’t I take this, twist it my way and turn it into a bolognese sauce? So I did! And it was amazing, hearty, with lots of textures and flavour profiles. We use pancetta, sausage, beef, carrots, thyme, bayleaf… yum! So you basically just have to invest like 30min to prepare all of the ingredients and then another 15min to put them to cook and then leave it on its own for an hour. So it’s pretty easy for the amount of taste that comes out of it (and OMG the SMEELL!!!!!!). I hope you like it! Eat it with your favourite pasta 🙂
