500g dry farfalle pasta
110g unsalted butter, divided
1 tbsp minced garlic
35g plain flour
725ml whole milk
250g finely mashed cooked butternut squash
250g crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
250g coarsely chopped Brie cheese (rind removed)
100g shredded fontina cheese
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
100g finely chopped pecans
15g coarsely chopped fresh sage leaves
100g finely grated Gruyere cheese
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Fill a large pan with salted water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta to the water and cook for 8 minutes, or until al dente; drain well, and reserve in a large mixing bowl.

2) Melt 6 tbsp of the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic, and cook for 1 minute, or until golden. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 additional minute.

3) Whisk in the milk and butternut squash and bring the mixture to a low boil. Reduce the heat to low, whisk in the Gorgonzola, Brie, fontina, salt and pepper, until the cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

4) Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta and stir well to combine. Divide the pasta mixture into buttered individual gratin dishes or a buttered 33cm by 23cm baking dish.

5) Sprinkle pecans and sage over the pasta. Melt the remaining butter and drizzle evenly over the top. Sprinkle Gruyere over the pecans and sage. Bake for 23 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
