on 18/10/2009

A delightful dinner

Tasty fried pumpkin chunks!

I love making this dish. Its one from Martha Stewart. I added more butternut squash.
Print me!
Recipe: For 2 persons, with seconds
Ingredients:
570 gr of butternut squash, peeled, cut up into 1cm x 1 cm chunks
200 gr strips of smoked bacon
400 gr fusilli
240 ml of Alpro soy cream
50 gr of grated Gruyère cheese, for the sauce
2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up
EVOO
sea salt
grinned fresh black pepper
Method:
1. Cook the pasta in a large pot with salted boiling water. Cook until al dente. Drain well, but reserve a bit of the cooking water for the sauce. Keep warm.
2. Heat a large non stick pan up on medium high. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the EVOO & heat up. When the oil sizzles, add the pieces of smoked bacon. Fry until browned & crisped up. This will take about 5 to 8 minutes. Put the bacon on a plate with 2 kitchen papers on it, to drain of the fat. Keep warm.
3. Using the same pan, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the EVOO & heat up on medium high. When the oil sizzles, add the garlic & the chopped butternut squash. Fry until the squash has been cooked through & browned on all sides. Stir often. This will take about 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste with sea salt & black pepper.
4. Add the soy cream & add the pasta too. Add a bit of the left cooking water to create more of a sauce. Stir well. Let the soy cream thicken. Check seasoning again. It has to taste fab!
Remove from the heat & add the grated cheese. Stir well.
Enjoy!!
