Pasta with Pumpkin, Sausage and Spinach




Yield 5 Servings

If fall was a pasta dish, this would be it!



Put up a pot of water and cook the pasta according to the package.

While waiting for the water to boil, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray it with non-stick spray and brown the sausage with the onion and garlic. Once brown add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Lower to medium and add the pumpkin, yogurt, sage, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine everything.

Keep on medium until the sauce begins to boil again then lower to a simmer. By this time the pasta should be done. Drain and add to the skillet with the pumpkin and sausage. Stir to coat and combine everything. Add the spinach and stir in until it wilts.

Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan!


  • I recommend keeping the sausage frozen as it's easier to cut.¬†Simply pull the package out of the freezer, pop in the microwave for 30 seconds and then cut it in slices.¬†
