Butternut Squash Pasta with Crispy Prosciutto and Sage (Fresh Flavors Nov. '13)
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 6 slices prosciutto, sliced into ribbons
- 1 medium shallot, finely minced
- 2 tsp. fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
- 1/3 c. chardonnay
- 1 jar Dave’s Gourmet Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce
- 1 lb. The Fresh Market Torcetti Pasta, cooked according to package directions and drained. Set aside on a serving platter
- 1/4 c. parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat for 1 minute. Add prosciutto and cook until fat renders and all slices are crispy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and set on paper towels to drain. Add shallot and sage leaves to same pan. Cook until sage is crispy and shallot is translucent, about 4 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon to same plate as prosciutto.
Add wine and scrape up any browned bits from the pan using a wooden spoon. Carefully add the Dave’s Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce, stirring sauce until heated through. Pour over warm pasta and top with the prosciutto sage mixture. Garnish with parmesan cheese and season with fresh cracked black pepper. Serve immediately.
Very easy to make and yummy.

Sweet & Savory
It's a must try. Not what you think. The butternut squash sauce is on the sweet side and it has a hint of tomato in the background, the prosciutto and shallot adds the saltiness and crunch. A hint of white wine and sage added with the cheese offers a nice finish. A lot going on.

Love this recipe!
Looks beautiful. Simple to construct in a short period of time. Great blend of flavors to awaken the palate. TFM Torcetti is my new go-to pasta. Love Dave's Gourmet Butternut Squash sauce.
