Farfalle with Spinach, Caramelized onions and Butternut Squash

What’s for dinner?… bow tie pasta with lots of veggies and a creamy parmesan sauce. Yum! Did you know farfalle is also known as farfalloni or farfalline? An Italian style recipe with a touch of Autumn. I love everything about this dish : )

I roasted the butternut squash with salt & brown sugar for almost 1 hour.  Squash is loaded with vitamin A, potassium, fiber and magnesium. I love caramelized onions, too! A restaurant style meal cooked in the comfort of your home. #loadoro #alltiedup 🧡😋

Inspired by Julia’s Album

Ingredients Caramelized Onions: 1 tbsp. olive oil –  1 1/2 yellow onions, sliced – 1/4 tbsp. salt – 1 tbsp. balsamic glaze or vinegar/ Creamy sauce: 1 tbsp. olive oil –  1 cup heavy cream – 1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded – 1/4 tsp salt/ Pasta: 8 oz. farfalle pasta, cook according to the instructions – 6 to 8 oz baby spinach – 1 butternut squash, roasted & cubed

Directions: Heat 1 tbsp olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet. Add sliced onions and cook about 10 minutes until golden brown. Stir often, without burning. Reduce the heat and continue cooking & stirring. Add a pinch of salt. Continue cooking on low heat, cook for a total of 20 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle onions with balsamic glaze. Remove caramelized onions to a plate. Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in the same skillet on medium heat. Add fresh spinach and stir on low heat until spinach starts to wilt.
