Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today! I am continuing my effort to cook with seasonal foods. I’ve taken one of my favorite Italian comfort foods and added a little fall goodness to bring you a hearty and delicious Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells dinner.
I was given the opportunity to try out the new Prego Farmers’ Market® sauces and knew these Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells were the perfect vehicle. They are made with vine ripened tomatoes, garlic, basil and other simple ingredients you would find at your local Farmers’ Market. You can find Prego Farmers’ Market ® right at your local Walmart where the pasta sauces are located.
Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells
For this recipe, I switched out the usual Italian spices (oregano, basil) and instead added in some nutmeg and cinnamon to really bring out the flavor of the butternut squash. I then combined the butternut squash with Ricotta cheese and stuffed into the jumbo shells. The shells kind of remind me of little boats in a sea of tomato sauce. Yum! That’s the kind of cruise I am on board with.
When the temperature starts to drop, I am craving more comfort foods like pasta and tomato sauce. This Butternut Squash stuffed shells recipe is easy to make and will fill the bellies of your families with happiness. It is also very easy to make in advance and reheat during the week when you need a quick family meal. You can find a coupon here to check out the new Prego Farmers’ Market® sauces.
This recipe is super easy but I have a few short cuts that make it even easier to get onto your table even faster:
-Buy pre-cut butternut squash so you don’t have to peel & slice it
-If you don’t have time to roast the squash it’s fine to steam it on the stove top or even in the microwave
-Stock up on some Prego Farmers’ Market® sauce for quick prep
-Make a double batch and freeze some for those hectic nights
