  • 1 Butternut Squash peeled and chopped into cubes
  • Olive Oil
  • 400 g Pasta
  • 3 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 Chilli chopped
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 125 g Goat's Cheese crumbled
  • 3 handfuls of Baby Spinach Leaves
  • Small bunch Fresh Mint chopped
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Spread the butternut squash out on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until soft and beginning to brown.
  • Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and place in a large bowl with the spinach, cover with a clean tea towel and leave for a couple of minutes to allow the spinach to wilt.
  • Meanwhile heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and chillies and cook until the garlic is just beginning to brown. Pour over the pasta and spinach along with the lemon juice, squash, goat's cheese, mint and a good sprinkling of salt and pepper. Remember the goat's cheese is quite salty to do a little at a time and taste so as not to oversalt. Toss everything together and taste adding a little more olive oil if needed.
