Butternut Squash and Pasta Bake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The roasted butternut squash adds a wonderful zap to this pasta gratin, while the mascarpone cheese helps to keep everything really moist. There’s this on going debate about which pasta is better – fresh or dried, and I can honestly say that I think dried is best in most recipes. It uses hard durum wheat, which when cooked gives that lovely ‘bite’ that we talk about when cooking pasta.
