Pumpkin & Sausage Penne
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Absolutely one of our favorite "Kick Off Fall" dishes! I've made this for a few years now and have tried just about every kind of sausage with it. We like regular brats (casings removed) or a mild breakfast sausage we buy at a farm best. I don't add any extra sage/spices or the cream to mine. This is a perfectly balanced, delicious and easy dish to make!
Wasn't quite sure what to expect going into this one but it was super-delicious! The whole family loved it! I did use the wine but didn't add the cinnamon and nutmeg because I'm not a huge fan of those flavors in savory dishes (and when I tasted it, I didn't think it could be improved upon). And I used parmigiano reggiano instead of Romano because it was what I already had on hand.
Wonderful! This was quick and easy to make. The pumpkin makes the dish different, but the Romano MAKES the dish. I am mildly allergic to milk, but was able to use Silk Soy Creamer as a substitute. I had no sub for the cheese, however so I used it sparingly on my portion. I used stock instead of broth, ground Italian sausage and unoaked chardonnay. Even my 2-1/2 year old loved it!
This is different. I doubled the recipe, used Italian chicken sausage and evaporated milk instead of cream. I liked it a lot.
I double this recipie just to have leftovers!
Very good! I have been in the mood trying new recipes lately. This was a nice change from the usual. I served it with steamed asparagus.
sending this recipe to my family to make too! We didnt use the sage due to young children eating it as well. YUM!
Yuck! This was very bad. We are not picky eaters, but no one liked it.
Super fast and different recipe to make after work. I reduced the chicen broth to 1/2 cup, upped the wine to 1/2 cup for a sweeter pasta for my tastes, dried sage and used what apple turkey sausage I had on hand. I didn't have any penne so I used what I had, fusilli. Definitely will make agaiin.
Doubled this recipe. It's a unique pasta dish & great alternative to pasta with tomato sauce. My picky 3 year old actually ate this. My sauce turned out a little thin, but thickened as it rested. I liked the sage/cinnamon/nutmeg combination with the pumpkin. I will most likely make this again, but it will probably just be a seasonal meal.
