Squash With Pesto Cream Sauce Pasta (Gluten-Free)
Start the weekend with this healthy gluten-free Squash With Pesto Cream Sauce Pasta. Seasonal butternut squash with tender young zucchini and only a handful of ingredients makes this dish easy. You start with the velvety pesto cream sauce, add the butternut squash, and at the very end, add the zucchini. Then all you do is toss your personal favourite gluten-free pasta with the saucy squash. In this recipe, I used spaghetti, but short cut pasta works well with the small cubed squash smothered in a pesto cream sauce. This is one of the gluten-free pasta meals you can make when you are short on time and want something healthy for your family. Every bite is filled with deliciousness, it is perfect, and the entire meal takes only 20 minutes to cook.
Two of my favourite squashes are butternut because of its nutty flavour and dense texture and zucchini because when properly cooked, it is soft in the middle and has a bit of crunch on the outside. When it comes to zucchini, you don’t want to overcook it. You can eat it raw if you wanted to. Using young zucchini will give you the best flavour and texture. Butternut squash is known to have the highest level of vitamin A of any squash and is rich in B complex group. Zucchini is low in calories and carbs and is rich in vitamins and minerals that include potassium, calcium and vitamin C
Every season I use squash in different ways, from salads to soups to desserts. Squash is super simple to use in cooking, low in calories and is rich in fiber. Butternut squash can be tedious to peel and cut, so if you are short on time, you can buy a pre-cut butternut squash. You will find that many supermarkets carry them ready to go. Including a variety of squashes in your diet will promote a healthy body.
