Pumpkin, Sausage & Squash Pasta Recipe


Pumpkin, Sausage & Squash Pasta

16 oz. box penne pasta (any type will do)

1 jar (25 oz.) Pumpkin Pasta Sauce (Stop & Shop Limited Time Originals)

1 tsp. canola oil

12 oz. pkg. chicken sausage, sweet apple flavor or hot & spicy flavor

1 Tbsp. butter

3 cups butternut squash peeled and cut into ½ inch chunks

1 small onion, finely diced

3 cloves garlic diced

1 ½ bags (6 oz. each) fresh baby spinach

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and return to pot.  Add pasta sauce, turn heat to low and allow the sauce to heat through.

While pasta is cooking, slice sausage into 1 inch pieces.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook sausage until browned.  Transfer to bowl and set aside.

In the same skillet, melt butter and add garlic, onion and squash.  Cook for 10 minutes or vegetables are tender and slightly browned.

Add spinach to the pasta and pasta sauce, stir until wilted.

Return sausage to pan with vegetables, stir until well mixed and allow to cook another 2-3 minutes.

Distribute pasta among bowls or plates, top with sausage-vegetable mixture, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
