Bow-Tie Pasta with Butternut Squash Sauce

I love pasta and therefore am always on the hunt for new pasta sauces.  I found this when googling Butternut Squash recipes.  I had never tried Butternut Squash and wanted to try something new.   This turned out to be pretty good (the hubs really liked it!).   You can't go into it having any preconceived ideas of what pasta sauce should taste like, because this is very different... but that's part of the fun.... more variety in our limited IC-Diet! I had garlic bread and green beans on the side.   Was a great well-rounded meal!
Bow-Tie Pasta (or whatever pasta you prefer)
1 Medium sized Butternut Squash
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 small Yellow Onion
5 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp Dried Sage
1/4 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Butter
1/4 tsp Salt

Cook pasta according to package.  Cut Squash into 1 inch cubes.  Chop Onion into small chunks.  Cook onions in oil until clear.  Add Sage, Garlic, and Salt. Add Squash and water.  Cook about 15 minutes until squash is soft.  Transfer to blender and blend.  Add more water if you want thinner.
