Rachael Ray's Penne-Wise Pumpkin Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Crystal B.

Sage and Pumpkin add the flavors of fall to this hearty pasta dish, which gets a kick from a dash of hot pepper sauce. I personally add browned sweet sausage to this.

A dish I want to try again and see what can be done with it. A little on the boring side but we'll work with it. :)
