פּעננע מיט ראָאַסטעד קנאָבל בוטטערנוט סקוואַש, Kale and Hazelnuts

Thanksgiving is fast approaching. That means it’s time for me to post recipes that will impress your dinner guests and leave you feeling very thankful for the bounty of delicious, compassionate food.

Be sure to check out my Thanksgiving Mix and Match Menu און מיין Happy Thanksgiving Message from last year.

This is an entree that is beautiful as well as delicious. Hearty penne tossed with sweet roasted garlic, creamy roasted butternut squash, crispy kale and salty hazelnuts. What’s not to love?

You can prepare this two ways: baked as a cheesy casserole or unbaked as an amazing pasta dish. אָדער וועג, it’s gluten-free, vegan and potentially soy-free, depending which type of butter and cheese you use. Leave out the hazelnuts, if needed, and this dish can serve people with many types of dietary needs.

My Penne with Roasted Garlic Butternut Squash, Kale and Hazelnuts is a colorful, cruelty-free, healthy dinner that will definitely be a crowd pleaser. האַנאָע האָבן!

פּעננע מיט ראָאַסטעד קנאָבל בוטטערנוט סקוואַש, Kale and Hazelnuts


1 בוטטערנוט קאַבאַק, פּילד, seeded and cut into cubes


1 head of garlic or about 10 קלאָוועס, פּילד


קאָשער זאַלץ און פעפער


3 Tbs. עקסטרע-צעלקע מאַסלינע בוימל, צעטיילט


1 לב. גלוטען-פֿרייַ פּעננע


2 Tbs. וועגאַן פּוטער


1 גרויס שאַללאָט, מינסט


1 tsp. dried sage or 1 Tbs. פריש סאַגע, chopped


א קניפּ פון מושקאַט


2 Tbs. נוטרישאַנאַל הייוון


½ טעפּל רעזערווירט מאַקאַראָנען וואַסער


2 large bunches of kale, סטעממעד און געהאַקט


1 גלעזל וועגאַן קעז, צעטיילט (only ½ cup if not baking)
1/4 cup hazelnuts, chopped

פּרעהעאַט די ויוון צו 425 דיגריז. Toss the butternut squash and garlic cloves on a baking sheet with salt, pepper and 1 Tbs. פון ייל. Roast for 25 מינוט, flip the pieces and roast another 20 minutes or until the squash and the garlic are softened and browned. שטעלן באַזונדער ביז גרייט צו נוצן.

Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Add Kosher salt to the pot. Add the penne and stir so they don’t stick. Cook until shy of al dente.



While the penne is cooking, heat the butter and the remaining 2 Tbs. oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until softened, וועגן 3 מינוט. Add the sage, nutmeg and nutritional yeast to the pan and stir.



Add the butternut squash and the garlic to the pan and toss to coat with the butter and spices. When the penne is almost done, reserve about ½ cup of the pasta water. Drain the penne and add it back into pot. Transfer the butternut squash and garlic mix into the pot with the penne. Add the reserved pasta water and toss the pasta for a few minutes to make sure it’s well coated. The starchy pasta water will thicken and create a sauce.


Add the kale to the pot and toss it until it begins to wilt.

If you are serving this unbaked, add ½ cup of cheese to the pasta. Toss well. Garnish with the hazelnuts and serve while hot.



If you are serving this baked, add ½ cup of cheese to the pasta. Toss well. Lower the oven to 350 דיגריז. Transfer the pasta to a large casserole dish. Top with another ½ cup of cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted, וועגן 15 מינוט. Garnish with the hazelnuts and serve while hot.
