Serves 2

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 large shallot or 1/8 cup minced yellow or white onion
  2. 1 clove garlic finely minced or pressed
  3. 1/2 pound chicken sausage if links, remove the casing
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  6. 2 3/4 cups chicken broth
  7. 6 ounces penne pasta
  8. 1 1/2 cups peeled and diced butternut squash
  9. 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
  10. 1 large sage leaf torn into small pieces, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  11. 1/2 cup shredded or cubed mozzarella cheese
  12. Salt and pepper to taste
  13. Freshly grated Parmesan for serving if desired
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, combine the shallot, garlic, sausage, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, breaking up the meat into small pieces, and cooking until the sausage is cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Scrape the mixture to a plate and return the skillet back to the heat.
  2. Add the chicken broth and pasta and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking and the pasta clumping together. Stir in the squash and simmer 5-7 minutes longer until the squash and pasta are both tender. As the squash breaks down, it will help bring a creaminess to the sauce and pasta so add more liquid, if necessary, while cooking if the mixture seems dry.
  3. Stir in the spinach and sage and cook for 1-2 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Add the sausage/shallot mixture back to the skillet and stir in the fontina or mozzarella cheese and add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Off the heat, cover the skillet with a lid or foil and let the pasta sit for 5-10 minutes. Give it a good stir and serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
