Baked Butternut

Last night’s supper was baked butternut, stuffed with peppadews and feta.

After slicing the butternut and removing the seeds, I made slight diagonal cuts to the butternut and drizzled olive oil over. Baked it on 200ºC for 25 minutes, uncovered. For the ‘stuffing’, I cut up peppadews and added crumbled feta and mixed it. Sprinkled the butternut with salt and black pepper. Served with baby potatoes and salad.

The result: I loved it! The sweetness of the butternut after it is baked combined with feta and peppadews give it such a lovely taste – I cant explain.

I’ve been going to Woolworths Cafe for lunch quite often in the last few weeks because their dishes are simply divine. I’ve eaten the following dish there and with the help of a friend, determined what went into it.

I just had to make it myself.

What you will need:
250g mushrooms sliced
400g farfalloni pasta
fresh thyme
Danish feta
salt and black pepper to taste
olive oil
optional fresh cream

Microwave pasta, boiled water, salt and oil for 15 minutes

On stove:
Sauté onions on medium heat in frying pan
Add mushrooms (after giving it a rinse)
Add optional fresh cream
Add fresh chopped thyme once mushroom cooks
Add a little crumbled Danish feta and mix

Drain pasta and mix the above together.
Add more crumbled Danish feta to garnish
