this is actually something i just made at home earlier tonight.
fresh, whole wheat linguine (dried works too)
1 pkg of double smoked bacon
pre-cut butternut squash
cut the butternut squash into 1 inch pieces.
remove rind from bacon, slice and cube into 3/4 inch pieces
preheat your stove to a medium-high heat.
add bacon and give it a 2-minute head start.
add squash. saute everything together for about 5-8 minutes.
season with a bit of pepper (the bacon is naturally salty, so don't add salt!)
add about 1/4 cup of water to the saute pan. turn heat down to low and allow everything to simmer for another 5-8 minutes more so that the squash will be tender.
for the pasta:
cook pasta according to directions if using dried.
IF using fresh pasta, cook near the end of the process
drain pasta and add to squash and bacon.
