Roast butternut pasta salad

Pasta salads like this one are always best with a generous shaving of parmesan cheese. This is a great tasting healthy recipe that takes no time to put together. The butternut is sweet, rocket peppery and parmesan rich, it’s a real beaut. It takes a total of about 30 minutes including the roasting. I always use a potato peeler to get long thin sheets of parmesan. (4 people)

What you need

1 medium butternut (500g)
Olive oil

250g dry pasta (use twirls, shells or even broken curly lasagna sheets)
250g rocket

1 cup parmesan shavings


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic

The process

Heat your oven to 220 Celsius.

Halve, clean and peel the butternut, then slice it into pieces about 5mm thick.

Lightly oil a baking tray, place the butternut on the tray and drizzle over a little more olive oil. Bake for about 25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

While the butternut is cooking, cook your pasta in the largest pot you have with plenty of salted water. Drain, leaving a small amount of water in the pot so that it does not go sticky.

Whisk the dressing ingredients together very well in a small bowl.

Rip up the rocket and add to a bowl, add the butternut, pasta, parmesan and all of the dressing. Toss well and serve straight away.
