Kabocha Stuffed Shells, Picante!

This is a really fun dish. It’s creamy, crunchy, spicy, and fresh at the same time. The creamy filling was made with Kabocha squash mixed with cashews. Then I topped them off with panko bread crumbs and cooked them until they got crunchy. When it’s pasta, you automatically think “Italian”, but I decided to play […]
