On to a baking sheet, toss oil, cubed squash, garlic, thyme, a pinch of pepper flakes, salt and pepper. In a bag, put the mushrooms, syrup, sage, and cayenne. Shake well and place on top of cubed squash. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes flip the mushrooms and roast for another 5-8 minutes. Remove mush- rooms and continue to roast squash for another 10 minutes or until tender. Transfer roasted vegetables into a food processor and puree until smooth adding salt and pepper to taste. Roughly chop mushrooms and set aside. Next, combine yogurt and parme - san. Saute the squash pasta and add in the yogurt mixture tossing (I only let the squash start to warm before I add the yogurt this prevents break - age). Add in squash puree and butter mixing until combined. Divide pasta between plates top with mushroom and extra parmesan and enjoy!
