  • Step 1
    Wash, peel and cut the butternut squash into cubes.
  • Step 2
    Add the cubed squash to a large pot of boiling water. Lower heat to medium and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Step 3
    While the squash is cooking, peel and chop the shallots. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Chop the parsley and set aside.
  • Step 5
    Remove the sausage from its casings and add to a large bowl. Add the chopped shallots and parsley, an egg and 1/2 tablespoon of flour per person. Season with salt & pepper and mix well with your hands.
  • Step 6
    Form the sausage into balls and coat in the remaining flour. Set aside.
  • Step 7
    Drain the squash and add it back to the pot. Add a dab of butter, salt & pepper. Mix well until smooth using an immersion blender. Leave on low heat while the sausage is cooking. Note: If you don't have an immersion blender, add to a food processor.
