Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

January 23, 2015

This sauce first came into my life from the beloved butternut squash & sausage stuffed shells. I cannot get enough of this stuff and it has transformed into something I would eat on my everyday pasta dishes too. Try it, love it, make it once a week.

    OK, this is divine. I make something very similar but with whole garlic cloves and sage in with the squash while you roast it. Roasted whole garlic adds such a nice depth. I’ll try throwing in onion next time!
