  • Meanwhile, in saucepot, cook pasta as label directs in boiling salted water.
  • To drippings in skillet, add butternut squash, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper. Cook, covered, over medium heat, about 10 minutes or until squash is tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Drain pasta, reserving 3/4 C pasta cooking water. Return pasta to saucepot; toss with sausage, butternut squash, basil, parmesan, and reserved pasta water.
  • Garnish with basil.

    I love butternut squash, and Italian sausage . This sounds so easy and good. I wonder if I could add sweet onions to the squash while cooking.
    P.S. Love the picture! My granddog Chico is a grown-up version of that little guy.
