Instructions
  1. Slice sausage open and gently sauté the meat until it is thoroughly browned, breaking it apart in the process. Set aside.
  2. To a blender or food processor, add sautéed onion, baked squash and roasted garlic. Purée. With blender running, add olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and blend until smooth.
  3. When finished it should have the consistency of a tomato sauce; if the purée seems too thick, add about 2 tbsp of water to thin it out. Transfer sauce to a medium sauté pan.
  4. Add the cooked pasta to contents of the sauté pan, stir together and heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir in chopped sage.
  5. Transfer onto two dinner plates. Top each with the sausage and crumbled feta, and serve.
