  • Preheat the oven to 350F (175C).
  • In a bowl, add the butternut squash and toss with 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • In a roasting pan covered with parchment paper, spread the butternut squash out evenly and in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until tender. Stir once halfway through cooking time to promote even cooking and browning.
  • Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the fusilli and cook according to the package instructions.
  • Drain pasta and set aside.
  • In a skillet, heat 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions and cook until translucent.
  • Add garlic, red pepper flakes, mushroom, and cherry tomatoes.
  • Sauté for a few minutes.
  • Add reserved fusilli and roasted butternut squash. Stir well for 1 minute.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • If necessary, adjust seasoning and add more olive oil to add more flavor.
  • Garnish with chopped green onions


  • If you are having trouble cutting your butternut squash, you can microwave it for a couple of minutes to help soften it enough to slice through.
  • Try to cut the butternut squash as uniformly as possible so they cook evenly.
  • When roasting the butternut squash, you do not overcrowd the pan so they'll steam instead of roast.
  • To store: Store the leftover pasta and vegetables in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • To reheat: You can easily reheat everything in the microwave. 
  • To freeze: Once cooled completely, transfer the dish to an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 2 months.
