This Healthy Creamy Butternut Squash Spaghetti is simple to make, delicious to eat, and just look how pretty it is! It's the prettiest comfort food ever!
  • 6 Tbs ghee (or can substitute butter)
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 1 lge red onion, chopped
  • 1 red apple, peeled and chopped
  • 2-3/4 lb butternut squash cubes
  • 3 sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups unsweetened oat milk (can substitute whatever milk you like)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 15 oz dairy-free cheddar cheese, grated or sliced (I used Violife Mature Cheddar Cheese)
  • 1-1/2 lb. spaghetti of choice
  1. Cook pasta al dente. NOTE: I have made this recipe with Banza Chickpea Pasta, and also with whole grain sprouted pastas -- both are awesome.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion. Season with salt. Sauce, stirring, 5 mins.
  3. Add the apple, squash, sage, milk, and broth. Cover and simmer 20 mins, or until squash is softened.
  4. Transfer the mixture (in batches) to your blender and whiz it up until very creamy. NOTE: when blending hot liquids it's a good idea to place a clean dish towel over the top of the blender, hold it tightly to the blender canister, and blend like this so the steam can escape and you won't burn yourself.
  5. Transfer the blended mixture back to the pot. Simmer over med-low heat and add the cheese. Stir until melted.
  6. Toss the pasta with the sauce and enjoy!
