Pasta with Butternut Sauce, Sausage, and Baby Spinach

I got this recipe from Gina’s Skinny Recipes at SkinnyTaste.com.  It would be so good with spicy sausage like she recommends, but I can’t find spicy sausage here in AQP.  If you are looking for a way to use a butternut squash, this is a great recipe for it.  I had a rather large squash (thanks to the generosity of my friend, Larissa) so I doubled the recipe.

Recipe for 5 servings (the AQP version):

  • 4 links of salchicha argentina
  • 1/2 k butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 10 oz or 1 and a half 250 g bags of pasta
  • 1/4 c shallots (in Spanish “chalotes”)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbs freshly shaved parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp dried sage
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
