There are 4 things I am super excited about this week-
One. Celestial Sweet Harvest Pumpkin tea- oh my goodness, talk about a cup full of Fall!
Two. Discovered Ezekiel 4:9 Organic Sprouted Bread. It’s made using a mixture of flours made from sprouted, organic grains. Holy nutrition!
Three. The commissary here in Germany officially carries Earth Balance vegan buttery spread all because I contacted them and put in a request- wohoo!
Four. THIS butternut mac.
I’ve always had a soft spot for butternut squash. Even before I started eating healthier.
Butternut Squash soup was always a particular favorite.
Actually, I haven’t made any of that yet this year. I should get on that.
Butternut Squash makes the perfect vehicle for a creamy pasta sauce. Just like with soup, it purées up so velvety smooth and luscious.
A great alternative to those heavy cheese sauces.
So much LIGHTER and HEALTHIER. Much, much healthier….
And it is 3-year old approved! Scarlett LOVED this : )
Serve this pasta dish with some greens and you’ve got a beautifully nutritious meal! You can even throw vegetables into the sauce too- broccoli, kale, leftover roasted squash, mushrooms, etc.
Lots of options.
Just make sure you leave the dish really saucy!! The pasta soaks the sauce up something serious and you don’t want to have dried pasta on your hands, do ya???
