Butternut Squash, Bacon and Sage Pasta


We have a huge sage bush into our garden, so I have to keep inventing dishes to make use of it.

1 small butternut squash, peeled and cut into strips
100g bacon, cut into strips
a handful of sage
1-2 tbsp butter
100ml single cream

Fry the bacon on a medium heat until its fat has melted. Add the butter and the sage and fry until the sage is crisp. Remove from the pan, retaining the fat in the pan, and set aside.
Add the squash and the cream to the pan, reduce the heat and let it simmer away for 5-10min or until the squash is tender.
Serve with cooked pasta and grated parmesan.
