“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.”
2 cups
