In a pot, melt 1 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook until opaque throughout. If using pre-cooked shrimp, heat in butter. Remove, set aside and cover with foil.
On medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp butter to same pot and melt.
Add onion and chopped sage and cook until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.
Add squash, cayenne pepper and vegetable stock to the pot. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until squash is tender, about 20 minutes.
