Roasted Red Onion and Squash Pasta

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2011


  • 2 medium red onions, cut into 6 wedges each, layers separated
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 pound short ridged pasta, such as rigatoni
  • 1/4 cup grated fontina cheese (2 ounces)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed
    baking sheet, toss onions, squash, and sage
    with oil. Season with salt and pepper.
    Arrange in a single layer and roast until
    tender, about 25 minutes, rotating sheet
    and tossing vegetables halfway through.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling
    salted water, cook pasta according to
    package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta
    water; drain pasta and return to pot.
    Add vegetables and cheese and toss
    to combine, adding enough pasta water
    to create a thin sauce that coats pasta.
