  3. In the same large pot of water, cook pasta. Drain.

  4. While pasta cooks, in a large skillet heat olive oil. Fry sage leaves for 20-40 seconds. Set aside on paper towel.

  5. Sauté onion in skillet until translucent. Add pureed butternut squash, grated parmesan, salt, pepper, pinch of nutmeg, and crumbled fried sage leaves (or use the leaves to garnish at the end). Adjust seasonings to taste. Stir in cooked pasta. Add extra parmesan on top if desired and enjoy!
