The salty-sweet combo is the inspiration for many a delicious meal, and this pasta dish is no exception. Prosciutto brings a natural salty touch and the butternut squash is a sweet, filling delight: combined, they bring delicious contrast in both flavor and texture. Herbaceous sage and a creamy, cheesy sauce augment the culinary ying and yang, making this marriage of opposites a meal of champions.
