Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease.
  2. Stir onion and garlic into sausage and cook about 5 minutes or until onion is translucent.
  3. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in pasta and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the pasta.
  5. Stir pumpkin puree, chicken broth, half & half, sour cream, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and pepper into the sausage mixture and cook, stirring often, until sauce is creamy and thick (about 5 minutes).
  6. Transfer cooked pasta to a large pot and pour sausage and pumpkin mixture over pasta. Place over medium-high heat and gently stir until pasta mixture is heated through (4 to 5 minutes).
  7. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Enjoy!
