    BethyBaby's Note:

    I came up with this recipe on my own when trying to find alternatives to the traditional wheat meat pasta dish. Plus.. these were the ingredients I had in the cupboard.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 butternut squash (Roasted, see step one)
    • 250 g brown rice pasta (rotini shape)
    • 1/2 cup cooked ham (I used Piller's)
    • 1 cup black beans (if canned, rinse a few times)
    • 1 tablespoon butter (use olive oil for lactose free)
    • salt & pepper (to taste)


    1. 1
      Roast butternut squash. Bake at 400F for approx 1 hour until a fork reveals that it is mush inside. Let cool for two hours on counter or in fridge. (It must be cool when you handle it so you don't burn yourself.) Do not add oil.
    2. 2
      Warm shaved or thinly diced ham with black beans in fry pan. No oil required in a non-stick pan. Low to med heat. Do not overcook.
    3. 3
      Cook brown rice pasta in boiling water. Do not overcook. Al Dente is at 7 minutes from the boil. You want the pasta to have a very very slight crunch. (Rice pasta has the tendency to turn to mush when overcooked.).
    4. 4
      Use a spoon and remove squash from skin. Do not include the hard outer bits. You only want to use the veg that has turned to mash.
    5. 5
      Drain pasta. Add butter/oil to prevent sticking.
    6. 6
      Add butternut squash mash to pasta. Mixing. You may have to mash it lightly as you turn it into the pasta. Do not over mix.
    7. 7
      Stir in ham and black beans.
    8. 8
      Serve. (you can add sat, pepper & Parmesan cheese - OPTIONAL).

      This is delicious!! Our whole family really enjoyed it and asked for it again! Just substituted the rice for rice noodles and sprinkled it with roasted garlic & peppers seasoning from club house. Its a keeper! Thank you so much for posting this BethyBaby.
