Butternut Squash Penne

Introduction

This can be made with or without the turkey sausage. I think the combination of the turkey sausage and the squash is amazing! The original recipe I got the inspiration from this did not have sausage, but had mushrooms instead. Just another idea! This can be made with or without the turkey sausage.
