Fusilli with Butternet Squash (Pumpkin)

Giuliano well and truly has my trust now. I'm cooking my way through his Thirty Minute Pasta book and I think I'm on to a winner.

Tonight was Pumpkin Pasta. Long wanted to make it. This was my chance.

Lots of butter. Well, 3 tablespoons. I didn't go for his mother's butter and tomato pasta as it was too rich, so I was a little apprehensive.

I need not have worried. This was delicious, and just rich enough to stop you from going back and grabbing another bowl, which I guess is a role rich food can play.

I was a little short on the pancetta, but that didn't matter.

Especially good as part of a multi course meal. I had a little braised lamb in tomato, white wine, sage and rosemary as a second course (from his Every Night Italian).

Fruit will follow.

Very pleased with this one.


  1. Thanks Giuliano! You're 2 out of 2 with your pasta dishes from 30 Minute Pasta. I plan to cook 1 new one per week or there abouts, and will report back here without fear or favour on how they go.
