Spaghetti Squash Pasta with roasted Butternut Squash Sauce is nutty in flavor and creamy in texture! And it is vegetarian, low in calories, healthy and gluten-free!
For a vegan version, try our vegan butternut squash pasta sauce.
When I was growing up we never ate pasta noodles made of vegetables. Pasta dishes were handcrafted homemade with strands of noodles hanging everywhere! When my grandparents lived with us in New Jersey, my nanny and mom would stay up late nights making fresh pasta. I would wake up to find my dads office filled with strings of noodles dangling everywhere to dry. As a kid that was so much fun to see! Boy was it delicious but boy was it fully carbohydrate loaded! Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against eating REAL pasta noodles every now and then. It just feels so good supplementing the noodles for vegetables for a lighter detoxing version! It is great how clean one feels after eating a meal such as Spaghetti Squash Pasta With Butternut Squash Sauce. All vegetables with a bit of rich creamy Parmesan cheese!
If you prefer a vegan dish just supplement the Parmesan cheese for vegan cheese.
Roasting the vegetables brings out a delicious natural sweetness in this spaghetti squash pasta recipe! You can also throw everything in a a slow cooker to cook with about 6 cups of vegetables broth. Just save the broth for another dish when it is done cooking for 4 hours. Then take out the vegetables and puree it with Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and the sage butter.
Nanny would be so upset with me if she knew the noodles were not homemade, but proud that we are all eating clean and getting our vegetables! The best thing is kids love this spaghetti squash pasta because the sauce is so creamy, slightly sweet and they can play with the stringy noodles:-) Enjoy!
