Edesia's Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

An out-of-the-ordinary pasta sauce recipe I came up with one evening when I was scraping the bottom of the pantry barrel. It's super easy to make if you use canned squash puree like I did. My favorite way to serve it is with gnocchi, but you can use any pasta you like. A nice change from the usual tomato, alfredo, and pesto sauces.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 2 cups butternut squash, pureed (15 oz. can)
  • 12 cup chicken stock or 12 cup vegetable stock


  1. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add sage and turn down to medium-low. The sage should get soft but not fry.
  3. Add squash puree and chicken stock and stir to combine.
  4. Turn heat back up and let it simmer and reduce down a bit.
  5. Serve 1/2 cup of sauce with 1 lb. of your favorite pasta.
  6. Freeze the remaining 1/2 cup portions individually for use later.

Excellent dish. I had to use up a butternut squash, so roasted it along with some garlic cloves, pureed along with the seasoning, salt and pepper. Served over gnocchi as suggested. Delicious! :)
