Pumpkin, Sausage & Squash Pasta

I made this Pumpkin, Sausage & Squash Pasta…and it was VERY GOOD.  This recipe came in the Stop & Shop Flyer in October, 2014.  It called for “Stop & Shop Limited Time Originals Pumpkin Pasta Sauce, 25 oz. jar.  If you go to Stop & Shop, check to see if they have any more of this sauce.  I know that that there weren’t many bottles left after Thanksgiving.
