>Camping and Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta

>This weekend was our annual camping trip.

It was a great weekend full of socialization, beer-drinking, and campfires.
oh, and campfire food. Nothing tastes as good as food made over a campfire, or eaten around a campfire.
And, I had my very own Dutch oven this year. My first. It has a 10 inch diameter, and it holds about 2 quarts of liquid.
Isn’t it cute? My dad has this great table to heat coals on, and, to use with the dutch ovens.
Of course, I had to make something amazing in it. Friday, I made the Mac Daddy out of Veganomicon. It has never been so delicious. Normally, I add lightly steamed broccoli to it, but, I didn’t think about it when I was making it, so, it was broccoli-free.
Saturday was potluck night. Every camper brings a dish for dinner or dessert. Again, I turned to Veganomicon. I made Chickpea Noodle Soup. One of my favourites from the book, and, it is always a big hit with meat-eaters. Really, how can you go wrong with noodle soup?
So, its Meatless Monday again, and I want to know what you’re making.
Tonight, I will be making Roasted Butternut Squash pasta. Want the recipe? Its really easy.
1 butternut squash, cubed
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
Mario Batali’s Butter and Sage Sauce Recipe – Use vegan subs, and I cut out the parmigiano-reggiano. 
1 batch Vegan Dad’s Easy Fresh Vegan Pasta cut any way you want it.
Toss the butternut squash and onion with about a TBL of olive oil. Roast at 450* until the squash is tender and browned. Stir it around every 15-20 minutes so everything is nicely (and evenly) roasted.
While squash is roasting, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add noodles, let boil about 2 minutes. drain, set aside.
Once your squash has finished roasting, make sauce. the squash and toss it around the sauce. Add the noodles. Toss it until the pasta is coated.
Enjoy with some fresh baked bread. (if you’re feeling really ambitious.)
