Baked Chicken with Butternut Squash Pasta
There's really not much I can say about this recipe except... it's good!
We love pasta dishes around our house, and we're always looking for new and different ways to make it, and this is one of favorites. Why? Because it combines two of my favorite things... butter and brown sugar! Not to mention, it has some veggies in it too.
Start with sautéing an onion, two bell peppers, and one butternut squash in a skillet with half a stick of butter, and about 3 tablespoons of olive oil
After you get everything in the skillet, throw in a pinch of salt and pepper, and two tablespoons of light brown sugar. Oh yeah.
While all this is going, get your pasta ready! We used eggshell because that's what we had. FYI--Whole Foods has the BEST pasta we've ever put in our mouth.
Here's the recipe! I hope you like it!
Butternut Squash Pasta
1 stick of butter
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil (more if you like)
1 yellow onion
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 butternut squash
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
!. In a skillet, saute' the diced onion, bell peppers, and squash with 2 Tablespoons of light brown sugar, half a stick of butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
2. While this is cooking, start your pasta
3. When all is done, pour the veggies over pasta, and add the other half stick of butter.
4. Add the juice of one lime, and more salt and pepper.
For this chicken recipe, I sprinkled salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, and baked it at 350* for about 30 minutes.
