  • small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into one-inch chunks
  • 3  Tablespoons  butter, divided
  • 8-10  fresh sage leaves, stacked and cut across into a quarter-inch strips
  • 1/2  Cup  one percent milk
  • 1  Pinch of  salt
  • 1  Pinch of  freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In 3-quart saucepan, cover potatoes and squash with water; add 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat, cover and cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, add 2 tablespoons of the butter and the sage to a small skillet or saucepan over medium heat.

When reducing a sauce to concentrate the flavors be sure to keep an eye out and not let it burn. For extra shine in your sauce, add a pat of butter at the end.
