  1. In a large 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and cook the shallot, garlic, sausage, salt and pepper. Break up the sausage into pieces with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Continue cooking until the sausage is no longer pink in the middle, about 7 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a plate and set aside. Return the skillet to the heat.
  2. Add the chicken broth, butternut squash and pasta to the skillet and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring, for about 12-15 minutes until the squash and pasta are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. (add a bit more chicken broth while cooking, if necessary, if the mixture seems dry and the pasta is not all the way cooked through yet)
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach, sage and shredded Mozzarella or Fontina cheese. Add the sausage/shallot mixture back to the skillet and stir to combine everything. Add salt and pepper to taste, if necessary.
  4. Serve garnished with freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
