This Butternut Squash Carbonara is a vegetarian twist on a classic Italian dish filled with creamy squash and topped with crunchy sage. It’s all cooked in the microwave, yes even the pasta- you’ll have to taste it to believe it.

Step 1
Place Butternut Squash (6 1/2 cups) into a deep heatproof bowl and cover with plastic wrap and make holes on the plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes using heat function on P8 (or at 800W) until soft.
Step 2
Add Onion (1) and Garlic (2 cloves) into a bowl, add Oil (2 Tbsp) and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes using heat function on P10 (or at 1000W) until soft.
Step 3
Combine onion mixture with squash and Vegetable Broth (2 cups) . Season with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Blend using an immersion blender until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
Step 4
Add the Bucatini Pasta (1 pckg) into a heatproof tray and cover completely with Water (2 cups) . Add a generous pinch of Salt (1 Tbsp) . Microwave for 2 minutes using heat function on P10 (or at 1000W).
Step 5
Take out pasta and stir to prevent sticking. Then place the pasta back in the microwave, cook for 3 more minutes using heat function on P8 (or at 800W), until the pasta is slightly softened. It will finish cooking in the butternut squash sauce.
Step 6
Combine the butternut squash sauce and the semi-cooked pasta together in a big heatproof bowl and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes using heat function on P8 (or at 800W).
Step 7
Give the pasta a good mix after taking out. Put the pasta back to the microwave, cook for 4 more minutes on P8 (or at 800W), until the pasta is completely cooked.
