butternut squash sauce for pasta

Filed under: cooking — noisedoctor @ 11:15 am

I tried something for the first time and it turned out pretty well. Iresearched some similar recipes and came up with my own. It wasn’ t incredible or anything, but it was worth eating.

Anyone ever do anything similar? I’d love to get suggestions for improving this recipe. Obviously, I started with a rather small quantity of squash (didn’t want to waste much in case it was lousy) so many of the ingredients are in pretty small units.

  • 1 1/2 cup butternut squash puree
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/8 cup finely minced yellow onion
  • 3/8 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar

Sautee the garlic and onion in the olive oil in a small pan. Then combine all other ingredients in a sauce pan and cook slowly for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
