Autumn Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
18 ingredients
4-6 servings
Made this last night for our annual pumpkin carving dinner party- had raves all around! The recipe doubled nicely and was easy to prepare- a few changes I made: I used one lb. of sweet sausage and 1 lb. of hot (a happy middle ground). I used RED onions, diced fine (like their color and sweet flavor). I used 1 1/2 T. fresh sage (4-6 leaves? What size of leaves? I also made this once using dried, rubbed sage- be careful with it as it is potent! Use half as much dried as you would use of fresh). I didn't have a dry white wine so I used a mellow reisling (it wasn't too sweet). I used half and half and I grated my own nutmeg (fresh nutneg just adds volumes!)- so there you go. I served this with bread, cheese, and a beautiful spinach salad (#29765). YUUMMM!
