  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a roasting pan with the olive oil. Place the squash and onion in the pan, and season with salt and pepper. Roast 30 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place penne pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the turkey sausage until evenly brown. Transfer the cooked squash and onion and the cooked pasta to the skillet. Gradually pour in the cream. Season with sage. Continue cooking until heated through. Mix in garlic. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with balsamic vinegar to serve.

My daughter made this today. She used ground turkey burger in place of the turkey sausage. She also used some (not the 2 tsp.) poultry seasoning (did not have any sage) and left out the vinega...

This recipe bombed. My child and husband hated it. I'm not a very big fan of sage in food other than dressing anyway but this dish was bland and had no taste. After a couple of bites, I had t...

I made this last week for dinner. It was pretty good. My husband really liked it. I only give it 4 stars because it's not very pretty, the dish looks all tan-colored to me. BUT, I don't like...
