Sauteed Squash and Kale Bow Tie Pasta

This is a very tasty and healthy main dish and it is easy to make too.  I saw this recently on the pioneer woman's blog and had to try it.
 But first I had to show you this.  I saw one of these on Bev's wonderful blog ( recently.  I guess I am late to the party because I never knew about these before.

 It's a yarn spinner!  You slide your ball of yarn over the spindle and it unravels as it spins on ball bearings.  No more balls of yarn rolling across the floor. You can find them on Etsy.

 Back to the pasta.  I forgot to take pics of a few steps.  Cube 1 whole butternut squash.  Saute it in a bit of butter sprinkled with salt and pepper and 1 teaspoon of chili powder.  Cook it just until it starts to turn golden but does not become mushy.  Set it aside.

 Chop up 1 bunch of kale and saute it for a few minutes until it becomes dark green.

 Add the squash and toss it together.

 Sprinkle it with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil.

 Add 1 box of cooked bow tie pasta.

 Add about 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese.

Toss and serve it warm.

This must be so tasty! Too bad I just used my butternut squash, they aren't especially easy to find in our stores. This would be great to bring to work!

Have a great day!

squash and cheese....geez......

it looks delicious.
That yarn spinner was neat. What a clever idea.
Okay. This recipe is another winner. I have everything in the frig..even the kale. Got a feeling I am going to love this.
I don't need a yarn spinner..but it is sure pretty. I don't crochet..or knit or embroider or anything.
It's a nice idea though and if you do knit, or know someone who does..what a great gift this would be!
