Are you also a butternut squash / pumpkin lover? Shops are filled with these beauties in this season and I could easily eat squash every day. Last week I made butternut squash gnocchi
, but today I wanted to try something different.
Pasta bake is a classic Italian meal and a great option for easy, comfort food. Even more comforting than that is stuffed pasta bake! Conchiglioni pasta well serves this purpose: I stuffed each conchiglioni pasta with a mashed squash mixture spiced with a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. Each conchiglioni pasta is then filled with a couple of mozzarella cubes that, when baked, create a soft, stringy cheese heart. I then topped the pasta with some more mozzarella cubes and crumbled feta, which work very well with the squash. Yum!
For this recipe, I used a rectangular tray of 24cmX18cm.
