    Cut the butternut squash into tiny tiny pieces. Saute them until soft. Add some white wine or water to help out.

  2. Change

    In a separate pan, brown the sausage. Then brown again until its cooked

    Also u gotta boil some water for the pasta then cook the pasta. I like a farfalle for this dish.

    Once the squash is soft, smash it all up into a paste. You can use a food processor as well. Add a bit of water until a nice sauce like texture is achieved.

  5. Add Photo

    Combine the sausage and squash mixture in a hot pan.

  6. Add Photo

    Pour in the pasta and add copious amounts of grated Parmigiano cheese. The real stuff keep it 100 boo. No imitators.

  7. Change

    Mix it all together and serve. Pay no attention to the beet salad in that photo. It's an imposter.
