Hello my name is Nancy and I am an addict…… OK not that kind of addict. I am a kuri squash addict, well at least until they are in season. These magical orange winter squash(or is it squashes for plural?) taste so good that they have turned me into an addict. Well at least I am able to admit my addiction, which is the first step in recovery right? hmm.
yields 4 servings
1 cup (8oz or 200 ml) 12% fat cream
3/4 cups water
1 small yellow onion,finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tbsp. butter
1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan then add the finely chopped onion and saute until translucent. Next add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes while stirring to prevent burning. Add the salt, white pepper, thyme, oregano and basil to the saucepan and stir well, then add the mashed squash and stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Slowly pour the water into the saucepan while stirring. Stir until the ingredients have completely combined well, then slowly pour the cream into the saucepan. Again stir until all ingredients are well incorporated.
2. Turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes or until ready to serve. Right before serving add the grated Parmesan to the sauce pan and stir well. While the sauce is simmering boil and drain the pasta of your choice. You can either pour sauce over the cooked pasta and stir to combine or just scoop some sauce over the pasta of your choice.
Serve with baguette or Italian bread, butter and Parmesan cheese.
Just looking at these is making me want more, good thing there were leftovers.
