I want to let you in on a little secret....this stuff is good. Real good!
We have loved Dave's Gourmet Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce for years, so I just about had a heart attack when all of a sudden it wasn't available in our area. And then we found it again, but it was now $8.99 for each jar. OUCH! For a large family, this made for a pretty expensive pasta dinner!
And so I did the next best thing - bit the bullet, bought a jar of Dave's, and then created my own copycat version.
It is perfection! And if you have never tried this before, you are in for a treat!
I've also roasted peppers on our grill and over the flames on my gas stove-top, but it works just as well to roast the red peppers in the oven at the same time you are roasting the squash. SO EASY! And adding roasted red peppers to this gives it such a layer of flavor and deeper color to the sauce - totally different from some of the other rather bland butternut squash sauce recipes that are out there.
The sauce itself can also be used as a base for some pretty darn good soup as well!
I hope that you'll try this - so good and flavorful and it is bound to become one of your favorites as well!
