About the Recipe

An easy dish filled with delicious fall flavors for those busy nights.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 4 slices of bacon, diced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and diced

  • 1 bunch kale or collard greens

  • 1/2 pound pasta

  • 1/4 cup parmesan


  1. While the oven is preheating at 400°F, cut up the bacon, onion, and butternut squash. Toss them onto a sheet pan, drizzle with the olive oil, shmoosh them around a little, and roast for 30 minutes.

  2. Take the sheet pan out, stir in the kale, and place back into the oven to roast for another 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil and cook the pasta, usually 9 to 11 minutes or al dente.  Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain and add back to the pot. Tip the contents of the sheet pan into the pasta pot and toss with the pasta water and parmesan. Add salt and pepper to taste.
