My notes: Since I was roasting squash I added another pan of zucchini and red peppers
to roast. I added the extra roasted veggies as I tossed the pasta with the sauce. The
thyme was good, next time I would like to try it with sage. I think adding extra herbs
would be better as well as not skimping on the pepper. This dish got my kids to eat
veggies. I saut\u00e9ed 8 oz button mushroom in a pan sprayed with PAM and added that to
the extra roasted veg. I also used the new Barilla Whole Grain pasta which is 2 g of fiber
more per serving than whole wheat pasta.
2 sprays cooking spray
20 oz Butternut squash, fresh, peeled and cubed*
1/8 tsp table salt, for cooking pasta
12 oz uncooked whole-wheat pasta, penne
1 1/4 cup fat-free skim milk
2 Tbsp white all-purpose flour
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
1 Tbsp thyme, fresh, chopped, divided
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano recommended
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, flour, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil
over medium-high heat, whisking frequently; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring
often, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in mashed squash and 2
1/2 teaspoons of thyme. Add sauce to pasta; toss to mix and coat.

CrissyBear's Note: This is a colorful, fresh and delicious side dish--the veggies
are not overpowered by butter or brown sugar and the toasted almonds add a
great gourmet touch. I use small baby carrots and cooked together with Brussels
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
1 1/2 cups carrot -- julienne-cut
3 cups Brussels sprouts -- (about 3/4 pound) trimmed and quartered
2 tablespoons fresh parsley -- minced
1 tablespoon sliced almonds -- toasted
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrot;
saut\u00e9\u201a 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add Brussels sprouts; saut\u00e9\u201a 5
minutes or until crisp-tender. Add parsley and remaining ingredients; cook 30
seconds or until the sugar melts, stirring constantly.
