Penne Pasta with Butternut Squash and Sausage
Serves 4-6

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/2 butternut squash, cubed small (about 2 cups)
1 pound smoked turkey sausage, sliced
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 large sage leaves, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces penne pasta, cooked

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, then add onions and saute until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add butternut squash and reduce heat to medium low. Cover and let cook until squash starts to soften, 5-10 minutes. Add sliced sausage and heat through. Add heavy cream and sage and let simmer for a few minutes, mashing the squash with the back of a wooden spoon to break it down and create a creamy sauce. Add Parmigiano cheese, salt and pepper to taste, and toss with cooked pasta.
