Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onions & Blue Cheese.

I have two pieces of information.

A: it’s f*king cold.

And 2: It’s f*ing eating season.

Unfortunately, I was prepping for my wedding during last year’s eating season, so I’m very excited I get to be more gluttonous this go-around.

(Marriage = eating more. This is a thing, yes? Someone confirm this for me.)

So, bring on the stews, the casseroles, the game meats, and the pasta.

I’m ready.

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onions & Blue Cheese
Serves 2-3

Ingredients
1 med. yellow onion, thinly sliced
salt
extra-virgin olive oil
1 med. butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-in. cubes
black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 lb. linguine
4 to 6 oz. crumbled Gorgonzola

1. Preheat oven to 400˚F; toss squash with 2 to 3 Tbsps. olive oil, salt, and pepper; place squash on baking sheet lined with parchment paper; roast in oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown; remove from oven; season to taste; reserve.

2. Heat 2-3 Tbsps. olive oil in large sauté pan over low heat; sweat the onions with a bit of salt for 20 minutes; raise heat to medium; cook until slightly golden (about 10 more minutes); remove from heat; reserve.
