Shrimp & Sausage Cajun “Pasta” with Butternut Squash

I’m trying something new, Foodies. No more than two paragraphs before we get to the recipe! I used to be a “tell your entire life story before giving up the recipe” sort of person. That is…until I started using other people’s recipes. Sorry, but it’s ERKY to have to scroll through 17 pages of musings in order to get the recipe so my 2021 resolution is that when I do blog food, I’m not going to do that to you!

This pasta dish is one I taught when I was doing online cooking classes. I don’t do the classes anymore BUT here’s the recipe just the same. I’m working on an evergreen version of the cooking class along with a downloadable recipe book. When will that be done? I can’t make any promises! During the pandemic especially, I’ve been trying to honor my energy. But I’m working on it. Anyhoo…here’s the recipe.
