Ingredients

  • 1 (19.5-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 (14½-ounce) can pumpkin
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pound penne rigate, cooked al dente, drained
  • grated Parmesan cheese and sage leaves, if desired

Directions

  1. Cook sausage as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Slice sausage into ¼-inch slices and set aside.
  2. In skillet, add oil, garlic and onion; sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add bay leaf and wine. Cook until wine reduces by half; about 2 minutes. Add chicken broth and pumpkin; cook, stirring, until sauce bubbles. Add sausage and reduce heat and stir in cream. Season with cinnamon and nutmeg. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes to thicken sauce.
  3. Place cooked penne rigate in large pot or saucepan. Remove bay leaf from sauce and pour sauce over pasta. Toss together over low heat 1 minute. Garnish with grated cheese and sage leaves, if desired.
