Adapted from a recipe by Bon Appétit


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 cups shredded butternut squash (shredded with the coarse grating attachment on a food processor)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh sage
  • 1 pound short curled pasta
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more
  • Freshly cracked black DRØM Pepper

Serves approximately 6


Heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add shredded squash and sage and cook, stirring occasionally, until squash begins to brown, about 20 minutes. In the meantime, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain pasta, reserving 2 cups pasta cooking liquid.

Add pasta and 1/2 cup pasta cooking liquid to squash and stir to coat. Cook over medium heat, stirring, adding more cooking liquid as needed, until sauce coats pasta. Stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan. Divide pasta among bowls; top with freshly cracked black DRØM Pepper plus more Parmesan.
