  • Summary

    Cooking by color might not be the surest way to devise holiday-appropriate recipes, but who can resist the lure of black linguine on Halloween? Tossing it with pumpkin-hued vegetables lusty with garlic and hot pepper might seem like hobgoblin overkill, except that the flavors work well together. Really well. So much so that you'll be making this pasta combination again and again, long after the jack-o-lanterns have disappeared.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
    • 2 orange bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 pound black linguine or spaghetti (squid or cuttlefish ink pasta)
    • 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
    • Accompaniment: grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
