Sausage and Squash Pasta

Adapted this dish from a recipe seen on “Lidia’s Italy.”

In a saute pan, brown onion, garlic and pepperoncini in olive oil, add one hot and one mild sausage (out of casing).  Once brown , add  half a butternut squash and half a red pepper, diced. Then add one can of San Marzano plum tomatoes (break up tomatoes with your hands before adding to pan). Simmer for about  a 1/2 hour, add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook broken pieces of lasagna egg noodles (or any other style of pasta) in a large pot of salted water and oil. Once, al dente, add to sauce. Finish with fresh basil and grated grano padano cheese.

Delicioso !
