Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Pumpkin Sage Sausage Pasta

1 pound sage sausage
8 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
3 garlic cloves, miced
2 cups chicken broth
15 oz. canned pumpkin, no salt
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 cup shredded Swiss Cheese
1 dash nutmeg
1 pound Rotini

Recipe Directions for Creamy Pumpkin Sage Sausage Pasta

  1. Bring large pot of water to boil for pasta.

  2. Meanwhile, add sausage, mushrooms, and garlic to a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage with fork, and cook everything, stirring frequently, for 4-6 minutes or until mushrooms are soft and sausage is no longer pink. Drain off excess fat.

  3. Add chicken broth and pumpkin to pan and stir to combine. Mix in cubes of cream cheese and Swiss cheese and stir to combine until cheese has all melted and mixture is smooth. Might appear chunky for a little while, but keep stirring and it will come together. Add nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Lower heat to keep sauce warm.

  4. When sauce is just about done, cook pasta according to package directions to al dente. Drain pasta and add to sauce. Stir to combine.

  5. Garnish with chives or sage, if desired.
