Squash Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

This Squash Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe is one of our family favorites! And the leftovers are delicious, too! (That is if you have any!)

Friends, don’t you get nostalgic when you smell an onion cooking? I do, because it reminds me of my childhood. It makes me think of comfort food, like tacos, spaghetti, and enchiladas, or Sloppy Joe’s, some of the dishes my mom would make.

Get an onion sautéing

In the 1950’s, it was said that if you’re late getting dinner started, and the husband is due home soon, get an onion sautéing on the stove to get the house smelling like dinner! I like that! HA!

Today I’m sharing a comfort dish, a mix of squash and pasta, and easy enough to use frozen butternut, too.

Now that we’ve experienced daylight savings time, it gets darker so much earlier. I am not happy about this, LOL. But a nice surprise was to get a lot of snow this past week! So pretty!

I do love the month of November for so many reasons … comfort dishes, cozy nights, getting in my pajamas earlier.

In a couple of weeks Thanksgiving will be here, and that makes my heart full :)
