Butternut Squash, Spinach & Goat Cheese Pasta

I first saw this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Camille Styles, and knew that I wanted to make it.  I finally got around to trying it on Saturday evening.   I made just a few changes, like adding a little more squash and some chopped bacon and it was sooo delicious!  I'm not going to say that it's low in fat or calories, but I will say that it's healthy and definitely worth the splurge.  I love roasted butternut squash and combined with browned butter, bacon and goat cheese, just to name a few of the ingredients, it is divine.  This pasta comes together easily and would be ideal for guests or just for a weeknight family dinner.  It's one of those recipes that you'll want to make over and over again...I promise, it's that good!

I'm sharing some of my favorite things for holiday cooking below.  Some of them I own, and some of them are on my wish list (hint, hint).  Just click on the pictures below the descriptions to shop.

WIlliams Sonoma For the Holidays

All Clad Roaster with Rack  This roasting pan is essential for roasting a turkey.  I make the gravy right in the pan when the turkey is finished cooking.

Finnex Cast Iron Fry Pan   I've been wanting one of these to make a Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Cake in.

Sonoma Twist Wine Opener  This wine opener makes a great gift for any wine lover.

Pink Grapefruit Cleaning Set  The pink grapefruit scent is one of my favorite and makes cleaning fun (kind of).

Spiced Chestnut Potpourri  Spiced Chestnut is my favorite Williams Sonoma holiday scent.  The candle is also divine!

Kitchen Aid Copper Stand Mixer  My Kitchen Aid mixer is over 30 years old and still going strong.  If I ever need to replace it, I'll buy this beautiful copper one!

Sonoma Wood Spoons  You can never have too many wooden spoons.  These are beautiful and functional.

Copper Stock Pot  I love cooking in my copper pots.  They cook evenly and look beautiful at the same time.  They are definitely worth the investment.

Pumpkin Tureen  I want this soup tureen for my Thanksgiving table.

Zwilling Chefs Knife  A good chef's knife is a basic kitchen necessity.

Stainless Steel Beverage Bucket  A beverage holder makes life easier when you have a crowd and I love how this one looks.  It's great for so many occasions.

I hope you'll make this recipe and let me know what you think!  I'm really excited to share it with you and I think it's the perfect recipe for a fall dinner. 

Happy Monday everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping by Crazy Blonde Life!  I hope you'll follow me on Instagram @crazyblondelifeblog!
