Instructions

Broil squash and cauliflower
1

Before starting, preheat your broiler to high. In a large pot, add 10 cups warm water and 2 tsp salt (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Add squash, cauliflower and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, toss to combine. Broil in the middle of the oven until golden-brown and tender, 12-15 min.

Cook cavatappi
2

While squash and cauliflower cook, add cavatappi to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl). Drain and return cavatappi to the same pot, off heat.

Prep
3

While cavatappi cooks, pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut each tender in half crosswise. Season with garlic salt and pepper.

Cook chicken
4

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Cook, flipping occasionally, until cooked through, 5-6 min. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook the chicken in two batches if needed, using 1 tbsp butter per batch.)

Make cream sauce
5

Add onions to the pan with chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 1-2 min. Sprinkle with flour. Cook, stirring often, until coated, 1 min. Add cream and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, 1 min.

Finish and serve
6

Add chicken, cream sauce, cheddar cheese, reserved pasta water, half the squash and cauliflower and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot with cavatappi. Stir until cheddar melts, 1 min. Divide between bowls, then top with remaining squash and cauliflower. Sprinkle with Parmesan and chili flakes, to taste.
