Sausage & Butternut Squash Pasta

We used boerewors sausages for this dish simply because they were on special at the time. You can use any sausage but ideally use one with lots of spices or seasoning for flavour. The boerewors sausages were perfect. The spices in the sausages means you do not need to add other spices when cooking. If using plain sausages, add seasoning to the pan. We also used fresh herbs from the garden, which cost us nothing. You can use any herbs you have on hand to add flavour to this dish.
