This is a delicious and hearty pasta dish. It has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. Roasted butternut squash is tossed with turkey sausage, sage and pasta. Use pork sausage if desired.
Grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese would complement the flavours of this dish nicely. Add a generous sprinkling at the end, just before serving.
Don't fancy sage? Dried thyme would work exceptionally well in its place.
For a dish with more sauce, add a few tablespoons of chicken stock along with the cream. Or, use 4 tablespoons of chicken stock and 1 to 2 tablespoons of cream cheese instead.
Gorgeous! loved the butternut in pasta and all i did differently was use regular sausage, not turkey. - 15 Nov 2012
Really good idea this recipe. I substituted smoked pork sausage and left out the cream. i didn't fancy the vinegar but next time I'd either use a little or perhaps some lemon juice just to freshen up the flavours. A lovely way to use butternut squash and definitely to be recommended. - 16 Apr 2015
Beautiful recipe we made it for 2, halved the recipe but used 2 sausages each and had the full amount of cream as recipe suggests! Will be making it again! - 17 Mar 2014
