It’s October, and I want to cook ALL the squash! That’s natural, right?! I have already made several pumpkin and spaghetti squash dishes. Butternut squash is delicious this time of year, and it is quite versatile. I had seen versions of butternut squash carbonara on Pinterest, but they all had heavy cream and cheese. Though this recipe is dairy free and gluten free, it is still so creamy and filling! It has a similar taste and texture to macaroni and cheese, but is packed with nutrients from the squash. I know this recipe will be on repeat throughout the Fall!
The South is currently experiencing a scary hurricane, and we are all stuck inside. Because of that, I knew I wanted to cook something comforting for dinner. Thankfully my boys enjoyed it, and we had a nice family dinner, despite the yucky weather.
I would recommend serving this dish as a main course. I feel positive that it would be a hit at a dinner party! Not pregnant, I would pair this with a buttery chardonnay.
Here is the recipe for Creamy Butternut Squash Carbonara, Dairy Free and Gluten Free. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
