directions:

preheat the oven to 450°F. quarter, peel, remove the seeds and chop the butternut squash in 1″ pieces (to help peel the squash, you may boil it in about an inch of water for ~15 mins first). toss the squash and the onion together with the olive oil and the herbs and place on a baking sheet. roast in the oven until browned, about 25 minutes. meanwhile, bring some salted water to a boil and add the pasta; cook until al dente and drain, preserving about 1 cup of the salty water. remove the squash mixture from the oven and toss with the pasta, fresh spinach and reserved pasta water. serve and enjoy!
