Tender chunks of butternut squash, toothsome greens, and hearty ground beef make this pasta dinner so flavorful and filling. This one-pan recipe comes together in about 30 minutes and makes enough for leftovers the next day. Add more chicken broth and reheat in a skillet (not the microwave), or the pasta will become chewy.
