Roast Shallots with Pennoni Regati and Chargrilled Butternut Squash

Chef Paul Collins says: ‘Roast Shallots with Pennoni Regati, Chargrilled Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Seeds’  We say: ‘Shallot, squash penne’!  

This sounds fancy but is really just a simple pasta that will fill you up whilst still being low in sugar, salt and saturated fat.

Serves 4

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

 

You’ll need:

1 small butternut squash

Olive oil

20 small round shallots

300g pennoni regati or penne pasta

50g pumpkin seeds

1 chilli

6 tablespoons water

Knob of butter

1 sprig of rosemary, chopped

Parmesan cheese

Rocket, for dressing

 

What to do:

Peel and cut the squash into 1 inch cubes or similar sized pieces. Season the squash with salt and pepper. Drizzle over a little olive oil then sauté for 5 minutes in a non-stick hot pan until coloured on the outside.

Peel the shallots and add to the squash in the non-stick pan. When they are both cooked remove from the pan and set aside on a plate lined with kitchen paper.

Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water. When cooked drain.

Toast the pumpkin seeds in the oven at 180°c for 5 minutes.

Add a quarter of the cooked squash with the chilli and the water to the same pan as the shallots were in and cook a little bit more until it almost starts to break down. Add a knob of butter as this will form the sauce. Add the chopped rosemary, mix and then add the cooked squash and the shallots. Then mix in the hot cooked pasta. Check the seasoning and serve in hot bowls. Grate or shave over the parmesan. Finish with fresh rocket leaves and a little olive oil.
