  • 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.
