Butternut Squash Ravioli with Browned Butter Sage Sauce

A couple of weeks ago (whew am I behind in blogging!) I went down South to visit my parents.  Before heading back home, I stopped off at Whole Foods to pick up something quick and easy for dinner.  I settled on the butternut squash and already knew I’d want it with a browned butter sage sauce I’d heard so much about.

A quick Google led me to a list of recipes and I picked the one that looked super easy.  That’s how I roll.  After 3 hours in a car with a 3-year-old, I was not in the mood for something lengthy!  This didn’t disappoint and I’m really glad that I doubled the recipe, since my husband and I are pigs.  We ate it all.  That’s how good it was.  I’ll include the single version though.  And since no stores near me sell butternut squash ravioli, I guess I’ll just have to ask Santa to bring me a pasta attachment for my mixer (affectionately known as Sir Mix a Lot) so I can make my own.  Hear that, Santa?  Seriously though, this recipe is GREAT and it’s so dang easy.  Winner!
