A family favorite!

I'm in the process of planning my menu for this week and this is one of the things we are having. We have had this several times and really like it. Anyway, I thought I would go ahead and type up the recipe and share a picture of it from the last time we had it.

Butternut Squash, Sausage and Bow Ties

6 oz. (2.5 cups) uncooked bow tie pasta (farfalle)
12 oz. pork breakfast sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 T. olive oil
1 med, butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (4 cups)
1/2 c. sliced green onions
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. dried marjoram leaves
1/4 t. dry mustard

1. Cook pasta to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain; cover to keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, in 12-inch non-stick skillet, cook sausage as directed on package. Remove sausage and drippings from skillet; discard drippings.

3. Add 2 T. of the oil to the same skillet. Heat over medium-low heat until hot. Add squash; cover and cook 10 minutes or until almost tender, stirring occasionally.

4. Add onions; cover and cook 3-5 minutes or until squash is fork-tender, stirring occasionally.

5. Add cooked sausage, cooked pasta, sugar, salt, marjoram, mustard, and remaining 1 T. oil; mix well. Cook 3-5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
