An Interesting Flop

So I found this recipe and really wanted to try it out... and the idea of it is delicious, but none the less it didn't work out right - and i tried it twice two different ways and still got a curdley mess.

Bless my husband's heart for straining everything and picking out the curds. In the end we tossed the pasta and squash with olive oil, herbs and the sage.

If you can try this and get it to work can you let mke know??

Pasta with Butternut Squash and Sage

1 spray cooking spray

20 oz butternut squash peeled and diced

8 oz uncooked bow ties

1/8 tsp. table salt for cooking pasta

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

5 1/3 tbs grated parmesan cheese

3 T fresh sage.

Preheat oven to 375 and coat baking sheet. place squahs on sheet and roast for 25-35 minutes. I just did mine in the microwave

Bring pot of salted water to boil and after sqaush has been roasting for 15 minutes cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to pot.

Add squash, buttermilk, salt and pepper to pot. toss over low heat to warm through about one minute. Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and the sage and toss to coat.

1 1/2 cups serving.
