Autumn Squash Pasta

This recipe is from the kitchen of one of my "FitChicks".  She adapted a recipe she found on the pages of Everyday Food Magazine...Gotta love Martha Stewart and Melissa Wolkon!

Butternut Squash and Turkey Sausage Pasta
Serves 4 
 
Ingredients
 
Kosher salt
10 ounces penne
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ¾" cubes
1lb of Turkey Sausage
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup fresh sage leaves
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/3 cup 2% milk
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Ground black pepper
4 cups arugula (about 3 ounces)
¼ cup grated Parmesan to taste
 
Directions
 
Total time: 30 minutes 
 
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook penne according to package instructions until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain, reserving ¼ cup of the pasta water. 
 
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick frying pan, heat oil over high heat. Add squash and sausage and cook, breaking up sausage into crumbly bite-size pieces, until they begin to brown, about 8 minutes. Add onion and sage and cook, stirring often, until onion softens, 3 to 5 minutes. Add vinegar and cook 30 seconds more, or until it evaporates. Stir in milk and butter. Remove pan from heat and season mixture to taste with salt and ground black pepper. 
 
Add cooked pasta and arugula and toss to coat, adding enough of the reserved pasta water to moisten as needed. Fold in Parmesan. Divide among 4 plates, garnish with more cheese and serve.
