Bacon, Pea and Butternut Squash Bake Recipe

Mr FFL and I created this dish one Friday night when I found some Waitrose Butternut Spaghetti and bought it home on a whim. It’s a very creamy and delicious bake. Perfect for a cold winters evening!

Serves 2


  • Waitrose Butternut Spaghetti (or just a standard butternut squash cut into ribbons)
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1 cup of peas (we use frozen peas)
  • 3/4 of a cup of double cream
  • 1 cup of grated cheddar


  1. Grill the bacon for 8 minutes
  2. Whilst the bacon is grilling take the Waitrose Butternut Spaghetti, pierce the bag many times and put in the microwave for 2.5 minutes at 900w
  3. If you are using frozen peas, place them in the microwave for 2.5 minutes at 800w with a little dash of water
  4. Put the Spaghetti and peas in a oven proof pan
  5. Pour the cream on the Spaghetti and peas. Then cut up the cooked bacon with scissors and mix in with the cream.
  6. Add in half of the grated cheddar to the cream mixture. Then sprinkle the other half of the cheese on top of the bake.
  7. Place in the oven for 20 minutes in 200C
  8. Take out when bubbling and a little brown on top, and serve.
