This make-ahead and a crowd-pleasing side dish of the Butternut Squash Pasta Salad Recipe is another gem in a Thanksgiving spread. Or any gathering, really. Organic pasta tossed with fresh broccoli, cauliflower, roasted butternut squash and dressed with homemade ranch makes this salad taste absolutely incredible!
Butternut Squash Pasta Salad Instructions
First thing first, roast Butternut Squash and cool completely before adding to the salad. See how to roast Butternut Squash in THIS post.
In the meanwhile, rinse and cut broccoli and cauliflower into small pieces. Place all the ingredients into a large glass bowl. Add mayonnaise, sea salt, and ground pepper.
I used Homemade Ranch Dressing. Also, you can add cranberries and any toasted nuts of your choice (my kids don't like any of it, so I did not include in the recipe).
