Butternut Squash and Pine Nut Pasta

October 31, 2014 1 min read

I love autumn vegetables, and butternut squash is not just for soups (although butternut squash IS one of my all time favourites when it comes to soup). Here is a great way to incorporate butternut squash into your next pasta dish. This recipe originally comes from the kitchn, but of course, since I can never follow a recipe I made a few changes here and there. Ingredients:
  • ½ medium butternut squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup fresh sage leaves
  • 2 cups cooked pasta
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
butternutsquashpasta Directions:
  1. Toss together the squash, onion, garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper. Mince half of the sage leaves and toss in with the squash.
  2. On a large baking sheet, layer the squash mixture out evenly and roast in the oven for 40 minutes at 375F. This would be a good time to cook the pasta (1 cup uncooked generally yields 2 cups cooked)
  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium pan, and fry up the sage leaves for about a minute until they start to shrivel, then crush and break apart.
  4. Add the pasta and squash mixture to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes until heated through, stirring frequently.
  5. Add in the pine nuts and continue to cook for another minute
If you aren’t a sage fan, or you don’t have it on hand you could always substitute for fresh basil, or even add some dried herbs, although the taste won’t be as strong.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
