Pasta w butternut squash sauce, sausage and spinach

Something that tastes like Fall. A little bit of sweetness from the butternut squash, a hint of spice from the sausage, a bit of cheesiness from the Parmesan on top, and a happy content stomach from all this pasta!


  1. Half pound Italian sausage
  2. Crushed red pepper flakes
  3. Half pound pasta
  4. Trader Joe’s Autumnal Harvest pasta sauce
  5. Parmesan cheese
  6. 1 handful Baby spinach
  7. 2 garlic cloves; minced


  1. Start a pot of boiling water. Cook your pasta according to directions on the box. I used fusilli so it can pick up that amazing sauce!

  2. In a separate pan, cook the sausage, red pepper flakes, and garlic on med high heat until no longer pink. No oil needed. I started with half a tsp of red pepper flakes.

  3. Don’t forget your pasta!!!!! Keep some pasta water on the side. Leave the pasta in a strainer.

  4. Add in the pasta sauce to the pan w sausage. Simmer until bubbly.

  5. Then the spinach.

  6. Arrange your bowl! Pasta, sauce, top w shredded Parmesan and pepper if ya like! (I love freshly cracked black pepper) Enjoy!
