This hearty, autumnal pasta dish is perfect for cold weather. We use delicata or acorn squash, two thin-skinned varieties that don’t require peeling, so prep is that much easier. Thinly slicing the squash ensures it cooks quickly under the broiler, becoming tender and slightly caramelized. Fresh goat cheese is added to the hot pasta, melting into a creamy sauce, while baby kale and toasted walnuts give some additional heft. Ribbon-like pasta shapes, such as pappardelle or tagliatelle, are an especially good match for the thin slices of squash.

Tip

Don’t forget to save about 2 cups of the cooking water before draining the pasta. The salty, starchy liquid is a key ingredient, combining with the goat cheese to create a creamy, silky sauce that coats the noodles and squash.
