Orichette Pasta With Butternut Squash, Sage & Italian Sausag

60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
15 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is really amazing, colorful and oh so tasty! The combination of sweet squash combined with sage, sweet or spicy Italian sausage is incredible! The Orichette pasta, "Little lamb ears" is perfect for this dish. I cooked the squash and sausage ahead of time, and set aside. This worked well since everything is heated through before cooking. This recipe was passed along to me from a GF. She's been bragging on it for years. I finally made it and now wonder WTH took me so long! From: Traditional Home, Sept. 2006 Although this recipe states that it serves 6-8, I think it serves 4-6 as a main dish. Serve with a green salad and sautéed haricot verts, some crusty bread and you have a lovely meal! Oh, don't forget the vino :D
