Butternut and Cabbage Pasta

Very tasty and satisfying. Especially quick if you've cut your cabbage and squash in advance. A terrific chilly night dinner. You could use another variety of winter squash, but I like the ease of cutting raw butternut for this recipe.

Approx. ⅓ c. (5-6 oz.) spaghetti type pasta (I used spinach pasta in photo above)

1 Tbsp. butter

2 - 2½ c. thinly sliced or small cubed raw butternut squash

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 shredded cabbage

1 ample Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 scant tsp. honey

¼ c. dried cranberries

¼ c. chopped walnuts

Shredded or grated Parmesan, optional

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain (save ¼ c. or so of the water) and toss with butter.

While the pasta is cooking, saute squash over medium heat in the olive oil until just barely firm-tender, about 4-6 minutes, depending on your slice/cube size.

Add the apple cider vinegar, stir and allow squash to absorb it. Mix in cabbage and cranberries. If it seems dry, add 1-2 Tbsp. of the saved pasta water. Cook 1-3 minutes, stirring often, until softened. Drizzle in honey and cook 30-45 seconds more, tossing gently to incorporate.

Last, lightly toss in the cooked pasta and walnuts; blend well and warm through. If you still need to thin the consistency a bit, add a splash more saved pasta water.

Serve with a garnish of Parmesan if desired.
