Butternut Squash Pasta w/ Fried Sage

Vegan Butternut Squash w/ Fried Sage

You don’t have to wait until the fall to enjoy squash recipes. You may even find that they are cheaper this time of the year so you can experiment with them to your heart’s content. After tasting this, i think that a good addition to the sauce would be almond milk and some nutritional yeast to make it creamier. If I ever try this again with more ingredients, I will update the steps here 🙂

Creamy, rich, and fully of body, this butternut squash sauce can impress even the staunchest of foodies.
