From: Lauren’s Latest.com

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES
cook time: 20 MINUTES
total time: 35 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 pound short cut pasta (Such as shells or elbows)
3 lb. butternut squash, peeled and diced
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock + extra if needed
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
salt & pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup grated parmesan cheese {use the real stuff!} + extra to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Bring large pot of salted water to boil for pasta. Stir in half a pound of short cut pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside. While pasta is cooking, bring butternut squash and chicken stock to boil in a separate pot. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes or until squash is fork tender. Using a potato masher, mash squash into a paste. DO NOT drain out the chicken stock. This will make the sauce. Stir in garlic, salt, pepper, butter and 3/4 of the cheese and cooked pasta. Stir and add in more chicken stock to make sauce the consistency you desire, if needed. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top and serve immediately.
