To make the recipe, you first need to create a butternut squash purée. To make this, you roast the squash, take off the skin after it has cooled, and put it in a food processor and blend until smooth. Then you turn the purée into a sauce by adding it to a skillet alongside some seasoning and cream. When heated, add some spinach and cook until wilted. Then, you simply added your cooked tortellini and top with fresh chopped parsley.
With only a few ingredients and a little bit of time, this pasta dish comes together for an easy fall or winter dinner.
