Original Recipe

Serves 2



  1. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  2. In a large bowl, toss cubed butternut squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.
  3. Cook sausage about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Cook pasta al dente in boiling water according to package instructions. Drain.
