- Spray inside of 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add tomato sauce, water, squash and garlic powder to slow cooker; stir to combine. Pinch sausage into bite-size pieces and place in slow cooker.

- Cook's Tips
- If refrigerated chopped butternut squash is not available, use 1 (12-ounce) package frozen chopped butternut squash. Another small pasta (macaroni, orzo or small shells) may be used in place of ditalini.
- Did you know PAM leaves up to 99% less residue? Use it to combat hours of cooked-on food by spraying PAM on the inside of your crockpot before use. You'll avoid annoying residue and save time on cleanup.

Amazing! Very simple to prepare. I used fresh butternut squash. Easier to peel and cube than I thought it would be. Used about 2/3 of a small squash. Realized I didn't have tomato sauce so I use...
This was delicious! I had kale to use up so used that instead of spinach. I liked the extra texture it gave to the soup. I also substituted turkey sausage and added a bit more pasta. I cut up...
This was very nice! I used mini shells because thats what I had on hand. What a great idea to put Pam Cooking Spray in the slow cooker. I use it every time now and my clean up time is cut in hal...
Easy and delicious. What more could you ask for? I used Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage links. I just cut each one in half vertically and then cut small pieces. I didn't remove the casing. Seem...
