Did you know that October is Healthy Pasta Month? Not that I need a reason to celebrate eating pasta, but I am excited to be taking part in the celebration with Dreamfields Pasta. I cannot wait to share this recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash Pasta Salad recipe with you, which we are Fall-ing in Love with.
Fall is my busiest work season, and I am always looking for quick and healthy meals to put on the table after a long day or coming home from a flight. Something I can have on the table in 30 minutes and still feels confident that it is a meal filled with outstanding seasonal ingredients. One way I make sure that time is on my side during these busy times is by roasting a big pan of vegetables and keeping it in the refrigerator for quick meals during the week. Really is a lifesaver when planning easy dinners or even lunches.
One of our favorite ingredients that starts showing up in the market come Fall, is Brussels Sprouts. My opinion is that they are best when lightly roasted with simple seasonings such as fresh sage and olive oil. Simplicity at it’s best, where the natural flavor shines. For this delicious seasonal recipe, I also added roasted butternut squash as well as red onions and garlic.
Another way to ensure that we are getting a healthy meal is by using Dreamfields Pasta. I was introduced to their products a few years ago and have relied on them for feeding us healthy pasta meals. Their pasta is made with premium durum wheat semolina grown in North America, and 2 ounces provides 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein! I always have a package in the pantry for those busy nights.
