Perfect Penne With Butternut Squash And Goat Cheese DIY

I don’t think I’ve had an entree with squash since last fall.  It’s time to change that.  This DIY recipe that mixes pasta, squash and goat cheese is what I want for dinner.  Serve it with a nice spinach salad and you have a great meal.  Thanks to Giada De Laurentiis and Food Network for the delicious recipe.
