Directions

  1. Put the olive oil in a roasting pan and put the pan in a 400 degree oven for five minutes to heat the oil.
  2. Add the cumin seeds to the roasting pan, and then add the pumpkin or squash and roast in the oven for about a half hour to roast.
  3. In a food processor, add the butter, mozzarella, garlic, sage, and lemon juice and zest, blend into a paste.
  4. Put the butter mix onto a sheet of wax paper and chill for 20 minutes, or until it is firm enough to slice.
  5. Add the roasted squash or pumpkin to the cooked pasta in a large pan (both should still be hot) and then slice or dice up the butter and add it to the pasta and squash or pumpkin.
  6. Toss to melt and combine.
  7. Enjoy!
