YUM. I used spicy sausage. Could use more sage next time! Also too much oil before the sausage, so my sauce was oily.

Very tasty, and a good use of butternut squash. Really useful to make the squash ahead of time.

Made this twice around the holidays, and it was a huge hit both times! Prepping the butternut squash ahead of time sped things up significantly.

I used egg noodles instead and no parm to make this dairy free. It was fantastic!
