Butternut squash, also known as butternut pumpkin or gramma, has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin.
When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweet creamy buttery taste.
Sage is a pungent herb combining the scents and flavors of citrus and pine.
Fresh sage is more vibrant and less bitter compared to dried sage.

Yes I thought so when I found the recipe. It was originally made with Orecchiette pasta, which I prepare some pasta meals with. But as you seen I changed it for gluten free Penne pasta.
The brown butter sage gives the dish a wonderful flavor.
