Originally I made this pasta dish because I had leftover squash from the butternut squash spice cake. In the future I will buy a butternut squash with it’s sole purpose being the foundation of this meal. I was expecting something tasty, and I was not disappointed. How can one go wrong with a pasta dish where bacon and sage are involved? You can’t.
I found so many variations on butternut squash sauce for pastas. At first I started to get an anxiety attack. What is the BEST way? Please! Someone! Just give me the all time best recipe so that I will stop wasting my time browsing recipe after recipe finding something about the ingredient list or preparation in each recipe to be lacking! Then an ingenious idea came to me. Would it be so wrong for me to take the things I liked best about all the recipes and make…my own recipe? I keep getting braver and braver, people! One of these days I will use nothing but pure instinct in the kitchen…someday.
