Cook's Notes

To freeze: cool sauce to room temperature; transfer to airtight containers, leaving 1 inch of space. Freeze up to 3 months. When ready to use, place plastic containers upside-down under hot tap water to help release frozen blocks of sauce. Place blocks in a large saucepan; cover and reheat over medium-low, adding water to thin if necessary.

    I loved this -- but the page didn't include instructions for freezing the sauce as was mentioned.

    Loved this recipe! Only change I made was to simmer rosemary (rather than sage) in the half & half before adding to the squash. Lots of flavor for so little work. My favorite kind of recipe.

    Oh, Sweet Mama! This sauce was divine. We didn't change a thing. We rate recipes on a 4 star scale, and seriously, this got 6 stars. And bonus...there was enough to freeze! My only question is, can you can this? I linked this to my Facebook page, and told quite a few people about it. Thank you!

    This is a great sauce! I made it yesterday and used it tonight. I heated 1 cup of the sauce with 1 cup water (next time I might use vegetable stock) and it was enough sauce for a pound of ravioli. I still have enough for 2 additional meals! I love that! The roasted garlic is a great part of this sauce. I might even use the mashed squash and garlic as a side dish! it was great without the half and half ( I saved a bit to serve my 12 month old!). I'll be enjoying this all autumn long!!

    I made this sauce tonight and served over whole wheat spaghetti. I added a tad more garlic and replaced sage with rosemary. Very yummy, a great fall pasta!

    I just finished making the sauce for our ravioli tonight. After reading the recipe, I had already decided to use chicken stock instead of the 1 to 2 cups water. It still was a little bland so I added 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. That made It is great. I can't wait for dinner.

    I roasted a few apples with butter and cinnamon in a shallow dish of water for dessert in the same oven as the squash. I used the apple water to thin the sauce. WOW! What a great sweet and savory fall dish!
