Last evening while I was going through stumbles, my friend Jessie of Simply Scrumptious had a post that was so similar to what I am going to tell you about today! Sometimes I really wonder if we aren’t just “magically connected” to those we tune into on a regular basis! In any case, Jessie’s words….great minds think alike!

When I visited my mom on Saturday, I left with a couple butternut squash. Yup. The first time I left with only two items in my hands. ;o) Of course, that meant I had to start searching for some recipes that included butternut squash!

I came across a Cooking Light recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Pasta on The only ingredient I didn’t have on hand was a shallot – so I just subbed some onion. This dish is so very yummy. So much so that Grumpy ate 3 servings for dinner that night….and then the next night he finished up what was leftover! I almost wanted to say to Grumpy “Do you know your just eating glorified mac & cheese?” lol. We all know how much he does not like homemade mac & cheese (egads that terrible boxed stuff is his favorite!). But, I didn’t dare….else he might all of a sudden decide to not like it. ;o)

Thanks again to Cooking Light for coming through with another scrumptious dish that is not bad for you! If you love pasta, bacon, cheese and butternut squash, then this dish is a must try. CLICK HERE for the recipe!

This is going to be my submission to Presto Pasta Nights. Make sure to check out Chaya of Sweet & Savory Says It All for the round up! Yes. I really am back. It sure does feel good!
