Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

Welcoming the new week with some simple rigatoni! This is one of my favourite pasta shapes and the sauce is incredibly delicious too. I have very busy week ahead of me, but somehow I know I will still find the time to make lots of pasta – especially as a dish like this takes only 15 minutes to make. Happy Monday everyone! 💚
