Dairy-Free  Butternut Squash and Sage Creamy Pasta Recipe

Feel that autumnal nip in the air? Up here in New England we can hardly wait for colorful leaves, thick socks, flannels, apple picking, and of course, comfort foods! This creamy, thick, roasted butternut squash dairy-free cream sauce carries a hint of sage and a little heat. It's the perfect dinner for crisp fall evenings with a warm cup of freshly pressed cider.  And did I mention this vegan recipe is also cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and absolutely mouth-watering?
