This Creamy Chicken Winter Squash Linguine has been one of my favourite recipes to make this winter. I love winter squash in every form but I usually only make it in a few particular ways: roasted with onions and tallow, thrown in chili or brushed with maple syrup, butter and cinnamon and baked on it’s own. Here, the thick and creamy squash mixes with the subtle hint of umami from the fish sauce and even more creaminess from the coconut milk. Tossed together with the rice noodles and topped with a quick and simple baked chicken breast, this is a perfect weeknight meal.
This recipe made me curious as to what else I could make with pureed squash. So many uses in sauces! You can use it as a thickener, on it’s own as a soup, as an accent in cream-based sauces or even just as an interesting sauce all on it’s own. Who knew squash could be so interesting?
