The sweet taste of roasted butternut squash adds a layer of delicious flavor to this perfect winter pasta dish.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and pasta and stir well. Cook until al dente, according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, heat three to four tablespoons oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add shallots and saute for one to two minutes until translucent, then add garlic and cook for another two minutes until slightly golden and fragrant. Remove from heat.
Drain pasta and add, still dripping, to saute pan with shallots and garlic. Mix well. Taste, and season with additional salt if needed.
