Make This!!

Pumpkin Pasta!!

My sister B gave me this recipe. It is 110% delicious!! B made it for her birthday dinner last Friday. I have been begging her for the recipe ever since. She emailed it to me yesterday & I made it  for dinner last night. Even Naseem, our super picky eater, ate it (except for the mushrooms). Make this!!! You will love it!!

Pumpkin Pasta

1# bulk sweet italian sausage
1/4# shitake mushrooms
2 portobello mushroom caps, halved and thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 med yellow onion, chopped
Salt & Pepper
1/2 c dry white wine
1 c chicken stock
1 14oz can pumpkin puree
1/2 c cream
2-3 T thinly sliced sage leaves
