Weekday Vegetarian: Pasta with Butternut Squash and Fried Sage for a Wonderful Autumn Dinner.

I had a squash sitting on my kitchen counter and a sage plant running riot in my garden and I just had to make this pasta dish for my dinner. I'm so glad I made it right away instead of letting it fall into my bookmarked recipe abyss because it was fantastic and a perfect autumn dinner.This recipe takes a bit of time for the squash to roast, but the active time is very short and it's easy to prepare.
