Autumn Squash Pasta

I've seen loads of squash pasta dishes over the last while, but this one is truly DELICIOUS! It feels autumn-y and like a hug, but only requires one dish. So it is ideal for a mid week dinner when you want something that feels special but doesn't take hours of prep or washing up.

What you need: (serves 4-5)

2-3 chicken breasts

300g pasta (I used penne)

1L stock (veggie or chicken, I used half of each)

1 squash, cut into large chunks/cubes.

2 headed tbsp cream cheese

½ cup grated Parmesan, plus extra for serving

Handful toasted pecan nuts (I simply popped some pecans on a dry tray in the oven for around 5 minutes at 180 degrees celsius)

How to do it:

  1. Heat the stock in a large pot.

  2. Once at a low boil, add in the chicken & cubes of squash.

  3. Cook for 15min or until both the chicken and squash are tender.
