Fall Vegetable Pasta with Bacon and Alfredo Sauce

September 24, 2019 0 Comments



Fall Vegetable Pasta with Bacon and Alfredo Sauce

As we reluctantly pack away our shorts and flip flops and dig out our thicker ankle-length leggings, hoodies, sweaters, and scarves, we can look forward to the emergence of a new crop of seasonal vegetables at the farmer’s market. Summer produce such as strawberries, zucchini, and heirloom tomatoes fade out of season, and sturdy pumpkins, autumnal squash, robust cabbages like Brussels sprouts, and snappy kohlrabi provide a rainbow of new tastes and textures to cook with. Little beats the flavor and simplicity of roasting a big pan of fall vegetables—luckily the crisper air makes heating the kitchen with the oven a non-issue—but you can also achieve the caramelized, lightly charred appeal that high, even heat gives to vegetables in a cast-iron skillet slicked with an adequate amount of fat. 

Our fall vegetable pasta embodies the flavor of fall in an easy one-skillet dish. We kept this dish paleo/Primal and Whole30 friendly by swapping spiralized butternut squash for pasta, and using our No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce that’s every bit as thick and creamy as the traditional dairy-heavy alfredo sauce. Crisp bacon adds a smoky, salty bite that enhances the pleasant bitter notes of the Brussels sprouts and accentuates the sweetness of the squash.
