How to Make Pappardelle With a Creamy Butternut Sauce

  • Cook pasta in salt water according to the package instructions until al dente.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan, add onions and saute until they start to soften and turn brown for about five minutes.
  • Add garlic, red pepper, black pepper and sage and stir to mix. Saute for another minute or two until the raw garlic smell disappears.
  • Add cubes of butternut squash and cook while stirring, until the squash is really soft and breaks down.
  • Add salt to taste and let the mixture cool a little. Place it in a blender with enough water to make a smooth puree (about 1 cup).
  • Transfer the puree back to the saucepan and heat through.
  • Add the pasta, chickpeas, lemon juice, sunflower seeds and capers and toss together.
  • Serve sprinkled with some diced avocado and a few drops of extra virgin olive oil.
