Butternut Squash Carbonara

If you need me, you can find me hiding under a blanket of pappardelle coated with creamy Butternut Squash Carbonara.

You know it’s been cold, when you wake up for a morning run, check the temperature, and upon discovering it’s 34 degrees, jump out of bed declaring ‘oh my gosh, it’s SO warm out!!”.
