2 good handfuls washed baby greenssuch as spinach, kale, or arugula

     

    Recipe Instructions

    Step 1: Heat oven to 425 degrees.
    Step 2: Trim the stem and root end off the squash and slice it in half lengthwise. Slice each half in half again. Scrape a spoon along down the length of the pieces to remove the seeds and cut into ½-inch wide chunks. Put the squash in a large mixing bowl.
    Step 3: Add olive oil, salt, shallots, garlic, and chili to the squash and toss together. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and roast 20-25 minutes. The squash should be tender and nicely brown. Drizzle the balsamic over the squash as soon as it comes out of the oven and stir around gently with a spatula.
    Step 4: While the squash is roasting, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the rigatoni until al dente. Before draining the pasta, add the greens to the colander. The brief contact with the boiling pasta water will wilt the greens.
    Step 5: Transfer the pasta and greens back to the cooking pot and stir in the cream and Parmesan.
    Step 6: Add the squash to the pasta and toss together. Serve hot with additional cheese and chili to your taste.
