Step 1

Cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Remove one cup water then drain pasta.

Step 2

Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté for 4 minutes. Add squash and sauté an additional 4 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté 30 seconds.

Step 3

Add water, bouillon and all remaining seasonings/spices. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until squash is fork tender, about 8-12 minutes. Add to blender (or use an immersion blender) and puree until smooth being careful to let some steam escape so the lid doesn’t explode (I cover a corner with a paper towel.

Step 4

Add butternut squash puree back to pan. Heat through then stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan until smooth. Add pasta and toss to coat, adding additional Reserved Pasta Water to reach desired consistency.

Step 5

Garnish with additional freshly grated Parmesan, bacon and toasted pine nuts.
