Winter squash can be both intriguing and intimidating. While these big vegetables look attractive, you may not know what to do with them. One idea? Use a kabocha or butternut squash in pasta.
In this recipe, the sweetness of the squash offsets the heat of the spicy Italian sausage.
To peel the squash, carefully cut it in half, then place the cut side down on a cutting board. Use a large sharp knife to carefully “shave” the peel off.
Add a salad dressed with a simple vinaigrette and bread to complete the meal.
