Celebrate Thanksgiving with Shrimp Butternut Squash Pasta!

November 23, 2021

When fall rolls around, there are certain flavors that always make one think of the season. Pumpkins, cinnamon and— one of our personal favorites— butternut squash, a flavorful squash that turns a deep orange when ripe which is perfect for autumn and provides a sweet and nutty flavor. Perfectly complementing a variety of dishes, butternut squash is at its culinary best when used in a tasty pasta. And, as we’ve championed time and time again in a multitude of our favorite recipes, nothing goes better with pasta than a hearty serving of wild-caught American shrimp!
