DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400, preferably convection if you have that option. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, peel and dice the butternut squash. Toss with a good glug of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. Pour onto the sheet tray and roast for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  3. Next, make the béchamel by first melting the allergy free butter in a medium saucepan. 
  4. Sprinkle in the Enjoy Life All Purpose Flour and whisk together for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Slowly drizzle in 1 ¾ cup of the dairy free milk and continue whisking over medium heat until sauce is thickened. Add more milk if you would like a thinner sauce.
  6. Season with salt to taste and remove from heat. 
  7. To assemble, pour the pasta onto a platter, drizzle the béchamel over the top, then sprinkle the roasted butternut squash and finish with the chive.
