As much as I am exited to tell you about this amazing spinach and goat cheese roll-ups in baked in this creamy butternut squash sauce, I keep postponing writing blog posts. 

So first read the following lines telling you to pin it for later because you won’t regret it! And then read why food bloggers write and write some more! It’s been controversial lately!

Butternut Squash Lovers: Pin this recipe for later!

Guys. It was de-li-cious!

Think the sweetness of caramelized onions, a kick with goat cheese paired with the creaminess of the butternut squash. Flavour explosions! So tasty! This is the recipe that you need on your meatless Monday.

I admit, there are a few steps to the recipe but oh-so-worth-it. And actually while the onions cook slowly but surely, you can prepare the creamy butternut squash sauce.

It also makes a great freezer meal! Double up the proportions and have one ready to put in the oven! Do as I say not as I do because I should have. I’ll make more soon!
