In this video, you’ll see how to make a simple, creamy smoked ham and butternut squash spaghetti meal. The creaminess here comes not from cream but from mascarpone cheese. This is a great recipe for using up leftover holiday ham—but it also works great with bacon or black forest ham. A hearty and delicious pasta for chilly fall or winter evenings, the smoky ham and sweet, earthy butternut squash combine wonderfully with the mascarpone cheese. See how it’s done. And enjoy!

Oh my gosh, I can NOT wait to make this. Last week for Sunday dinner I made butternut squash lasagna rolls (essentially traditional style lasagna rolls, except baked in a butternut squash sauce rather than marinara) and this sounds just as fabulous. Will have to buy another butternut, though, as today for lunch I ate up what was left of the one I used for the lasagna. Butternut squash is the perfect fall treat! Thanks, John :)

To loretta and headingleewards, the recipe is in blue at the end of the blurb at the bottom under the video. I think I'll try this with sweet potatoes instead of squash.

For those who are concerned about not being able to save the recipes from videos. You can download a PDF printer (I use adobe but there are free ones out there). Basically when you find a recipe you like you can "print" and turn it into a PDF file to save on your computer (rather than print to paper). This comes in super handy when you find good recipes on sites without a 'save to box' option.

Thanks for the video and your time -- I don't understand the point of complaining about a video. Don't click on it then!! By the way this recipe freezes well for make ahead meals!

Yeah, you could go to that website but you can't save the recipe to try later on this site. I'm sure I'll forget that I'm interested in making this.

Don't mean to be rude but it always surprises me to see people get upset about not having the printed recipe when chef John clearly says "ALL THE INGREDIENTS ARE ON FOODWISHES.COM". It's that simple people.

I have no need of videos - where is the printed recipe?

Really, it's a bit ridiculous to put up a video and not have a recipe for reference or printing.
