Susan talks about her new cookbook:



 Baked Ziti with Butternut Squash and Ricotta

Where is it written that baked pasta dishes have to be loaded with tomato sauce and cheese? This one stars creamy ricotta and sweet squash.

Serves 6

Vegetable oil, to grease the pan
1 pound ziti, penne or small shells pasta
1 bag (16 ounces) frozen puréed butternut squash, thawed
1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
Salt and black pepper
¾ cup Parmesan, grated, and divided
½ cup prepared basil pesto


TIP: Whole-milk ricotta is best for cooking. Low-fat varieties don’t stand up to high heat as well.


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish.

2. Cook pasta 2 minutes less than package directions. Drain. Meanwhile, place squash in a metal colander; set colander over boiling pasta to warm through.

3. In a large bowl, whisk ricotta, warm squash, eggs, salt and pepper. Fold in the cooked pasta until coated. Stir in ¼ cup of the Parmesan.

4. Spoon mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish; dot with pesto and sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes, until lightly golden and warmed through.
Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
