A bit late to the game, but I couldn't let this recipe stand with a single 2 starred review. Made this on one of the first days of fall and it completely hit the spot for warm autumnal comfort food. Only 4 stars because there was a little something "baby foodish" about it, maybe the orange pureed texture. Would make it again but next time maybe water it down a bit more with pasta water. Loved the sage and butternut squash combo. Only had walnuts on hand so I substituted those for the almonds...definitely recommend that substitution. .
I thought this was delicious. Butternut squash is the star of the show and makes for a creamy, delicious, plant-based replacement to traditional carbonara ingredients. We ate it all up!
