This, my friends, was the easiest and most delicious meal EVER!!!
It honestly came together in under 20 minutes, and for a Monday evening dinner, it was beyond perfect! The butternut squash filled pasta and the buttery tomato and yellow squash, made a great match of sweet and salty!
I had little time yesterday to think of dinner ideas. I stopped at Trader Joe’s on my way home from work for a few items, and BOOM…. I discovered yet another delicious item of theirs. Thanks Trader Joe’s!!! You will find this deliciousness in the refrigerated section; by the meats and cheeses.
I will definitely add this to our dinner rotation. I have a feeling this would be delicious with a sage butter or even a sweeter sauce and a nutty crunch. Ugh I’m drooling and I just ate.
Try it for yourself with the recipe below. Let me know your thoughts once you’ve made it. XO
