Pappardelle with Butternut Squash and Blue Cheese

    "For me, this dish is indisputably at its best with Pappardelle -- those wide, hefty ribbons that sometimes come with one ruffled edge," says Nigella Lawson, recipe developer and television personality. "Rigatoni, the oversized corrugated tubes, could also work. Just bear in mind that a sauce so richly resonant with sweet squash paired with the salty-sharp cheese, the pasta must be robust."
