Butternut squash, pancetta and leek pappardelle is fancied-up comfort food in 30 minutes flat
If you look up the definition of fall comfort food in the dictionary, you'll find this pasta recipe. OK, not really — but you should.
When leeks, pancetta (bacon's un-smoked Italian sister), butternut squash and a generous amount of cream combine, you get the ultimate as far as fall comfort food goes. The only thing that can possibly make all those things better is being tossed with thick-cut pappardelle noodles and topped with a liberal handful of Parmesan cheese.
Take note, this isn't a healthy dinner by any means, but it sure as heck is a delicious one and impressive enough for a dinner party.
