Butternut squash with sage and browned butter is as close to gastronomic bliss as we can imagine this time of year. You'll be tempted to pass on dessert for seconds of any dish containing this particular combination. Just trust us on this one!

The sage and squash contrast perfectly, and the browned butter adds a layer of caramel nuttiness without turning the dish overly sweet. So good!

To be honest, we'd be perfectly happy with a big bowl of just the roasted squash mashed with some browned butter and sage. Except then we'd miss out on delicious pastas, risottos, and all the other ways these three ingredients can be recombined!
