Alright, I’ve been on a bit of a spinach kick as of late. I’m aware of this and I’m seeking treatment. But spinach is such a great filler in in meatless dishes, and combined with butternut squash, this dish has a one-two punch of meatless and veggie-full (even the pasta has vegetables!).
Vegan Butternut Squash and Spinach Pasta
8 oz dry vegetable pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1 red onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
10 ounces spinach (frozen or fresh), chopped
sea salt, pepper to taste
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Heat olive oil in a large saute or saucepan over medium to medium high heat. Add squash, onion, spinach and garlic. Saute until squash is tender, adding more olive oil if necessary. Reduce heat. Add the pasta to the vegetables and stir to combine. Season to taste & enjoy!
