Roasted Butternut Squash, Tomato & Walnut Penne Pasta Recipe

Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta Recipe

A new recipe!

I made this pasta for an Instagram campaign I did with Barilla pasta and whilst my insta post was sponsored this isn’t, I’m just sharing the recipe. It’s a simple dish but slow roasting the butternut squash and tomatoes, really enhance the flavours, there’s crunch from the walnuts and lots of creaminess from the greek yoghurt.
