Roasted Onion Squash Pasta

Having selected a very cute looking Onion Squash from my local farmers market, I decided to cook up something rich and hearty. This would work equally well with butternut squash or something similar...

Roasted Onion Squash Pasta

(Not the most appetitising of photo's, sorry!)

One onion squash or half a large butternut squash, peeled and cubed
Two deseeded red peppers, chopped
One (red) onion, finely chopped
Garlic, to taste
Smoked Bacon, cubed
Creme Fraíche

- Roast squash and peppers in an oiled tray, preheated oven (190C) for about twenty minutes or until softened and golden. Set aside.
- Put pasta on to boil in lightly salted water
- Heat a medium sized pan with a little oil then gently fry onion and garlic.
- Add bacon and brown all over.
- Add the roasted vegetables and fry enough to warm through
- Drain pasta. Stir about a tablespoon of creme fraiche into mixture to coat everything but not so everything is swimming in liquid. Add more if required.
- Add drained pasta, stir well and serve.
