Pasta Alfredo with Squash & Broccoli

So last week I posted those delicious Zoodles with Chicken and Tomatoes (link here) which was a nice, light dinner (check it out if you didn’t see it). And today, I am sharing a pasta recipe that is equally delicious but definitely not on the lighter side. This is a rich pasta dish with roasted…

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Happy October! I know fall technically starts September 21 but I feel like once we get to October, that’s when it really sets in. So in honour of that, I made a recipe using a fall-ey ingredient – squash! To be more specific, I used spaghetti squash, which is one of my faves. Not only…

Cheesy Kale & Spaghetti Squash Casserole

I had this spaghetti squash for a little while and didn’t know what to do with it. I finally looked up some recipes and stumbled upon this one from Kalyn’s Kitchen (link here). It combined cooked squash with kale and lots of cheese, then baked in a hot oven. I didn’t think it could be…

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds + Pumpkin Puree

Fall is the season of squash. There are so many things you can do with squashes, they’re almost as versatile as potatoes. Did you know you can also eat the seeds? It’s true! I had bought a couple pie pumpkins because I wanted to make my own pumpkin puree to use in cooking***. As I…

Recipe #16: Roasted Acorn Squash

Squash season is upon us so the timing of this recipe was perfect. I love all kinds of squash and I’m really loving acorn squash specifically because it’s so tasty and you can eat the skin! I also love the squash because it looks so pretty when sliced this way. This roasted squash was a…

Recipe #2: Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash

This was a super yummy dinner and surprisingly quite filling. This recipe basically has 2 parts to it – sweet roasted squash and moroccan spiced quinoa. I used slightly smaller acorn squashes than the recipe called for which meant it had less cooking time in the oven. I also used garam masala instead of cinnamon…

Pasta with Roasted Tomato Sauce and Delicata Squash

This was a good meal and very in season. So for the tomato sauce, I roasted some cherry tomatoes in the oven with a little oil, salt and pepper – until they were browning and starting to burst open. Then I roughly pureed them to get a sauce consistency. I had to add about 1/2…
