Penne Al’Arrabiata with Roasted Squash.

Welcome to the Weekend Potlucks & this weekend’s theme has been chosen by the talented Suz from @nutristarliving
The theme is #VeganWeekend5orLess
5 or less Ingredients (spices & herbs not included in the count) ??
The aim to show vegan food can be both simple & nutritional; quick & budget friendly.

For some reason, at first I felt a bit floored ? so I went to the fridge, knowing I was low on supplies (I needed a shop) & wondered if I could pull a meal together, simply from what was in there ???

1️⃣ Butternut Squash
2️⃣ Cherry tomatoes
3️⃣ Onions
4️⃣ Garlic
… & from my dry cupboard I chose some
5️⃣ Tricolour Penne that needed using up (I’ve run out of the red lentil or buckwheat pasta that I normally prefer).

?️Roasted Butternut Squash:
I cubed the last of the butternut squash, tossed it in some dried herbs & seasoning & then popped it in the oven.

?️Arrabiata Sauce:
I water sautéd the finely diced onions & then cooked down the last of the cherry tomatoes ? I added garlic powder, dried basil, chilli flakes & seasoning.

?️ Finally I cooked the Pasta

Normally with more supplies, I would use red lentil pasta to add a little protein.

Voila, Hey Presto dinner in 15-20 mins or so & tasty on a cool evening.
