So I've invited some friends for dinner tomorrow night. Here's the thing. One is kosher and/or vegetarian (the line is very fuzzy for her). If the meat is kosher she'll eat it, if not, she'll go veg. Since I really don't have access to much kosher meat, I decided to make some kind of pasta dish. I have this idea that I want to do something with butternut squash and fettuccine (or similar pasta). Is there a delicious, hearty, warm and fuzzy pasta dish I can make that isn't a butternut squash lasagne? I have a recipe for lasagne with butternut squash but somehow just don't feel like lasagne. No bacon or sausage, of course (which would I would otherwise use).
I also happen to have some kosher cornish hens in the freezer if that helps. But then, of course, no cheese or dairy in the meal.
I'll be serving it with a good bitter salad and maybe some kind of green veg like rapini or broccoli. It's cold and horrible outside - I don't want a light dinner.
