Pumpkin Pasta with Butternut Squash and Chicken

This post goes out Stop and Shop.  They have been stocking their supermarket with all the pumpkin items I could possibly need as fall begins.

Pumpkin Pasta with Butternut Squash and Chicken

1 Jar Stop and Shop Pumpkin Pasta Sauce
1 cooked chicken breast, diced or shredded
1 cup butternut squash, frozen
A bunch of sage leaves, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb pasta
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese, for serving

1. Boil a large pot of water for the pasta. Cook according to package directions.
2. In a large skillet heat oil on medium.  Season butternut squash with salt and pepper and toss into heated skillet.  Cook until slightly browned.  Pour pumpkin sauce into skillet along with the cooked chicken.  Allow all components to heat up while pasta is cooking.
3. When pasta is finished, coat with sauce mixture.  Top with minced sage leaves.  Spoon into bowls and top with a hearty spoonful of Parmesan cheese.

The pasta sauce is tomato based, with pumpkin added to it.

How can you not love this bowl that's just screaming FALL?
