Notes: * A green salad with Truffle Oil Vinaigrette (Click here for recipe) pairs nicely with the flavors in this dish. * You can easily make this recipe for two nights by cooking double the amount of sausage, onion, & garlic. Once it is done cooking set half aside in the fridge for the second night. When prepping butternut squash noodles, collards and spaghetti, double and set half aside in fridge for second night. For cream sauce, go ahead and combine the amounts of wine, cream, milk, mustard, & rosemary for second night in a small container while you have ingredients out for tonight's recipe. Store in fridge. Topping can also be doubled for the second night. The second night the recipe will go together very quickly! * I can find all-natural chicken sausage in the meat department at my local Whole Foods. If you cannot find, substitute turkey or pork sausage.
