PUMPKIN AND SAGE SAUCE WITH ISOPASTA FUSILLI

Serves 6

 This smooth, seasonal sauce pairs beautifully with any of our protein-rich ISOPASTAs and gives you all the comfort of a cream sauce without all the fat. Pumpkin and butternut squash lend huge amounts of vitamins A and C, while Canadian turkey bacon gives you little pops of salty texture. I used ISOPASTA Fusilli for this savory, satisfying, low-fat dinner, but feel free to try it with our ISOPASTA Rice, too, for a great, easy, impressive risotto!

Wine Recommendation: This creamy pumpkin sauce is well-paired with a crisp Pinot Grigio. Cheers!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

Ingredients:

  • 10.56oz ISOPASTA Fusilli
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 16 oz peeled, cubed butternut squash
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 c chicken stock (preferably organic)
  • 4 oz canned pumpkin
  • 1 c 2% cottage cheese
  • ¼ c Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
  • 6 oz Canadian Turkey Bacon, diced

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat your olive oil and sauté the squash, onion, and garlic for ten minutes, stirring often.
  2. Add the stock, raise the heat to high, and bring the stock to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until the squash is tender.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the ISOPASTA Fusilli according to the package directions. In a fine mesh strainer, drain your fusilli when it is cooked to al dente and pour it into a large serving bowl.
  4. Carefully blend the hot squash/stock mix with the pumpkin, cheeses, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor, or with an immersion blender.
  5. Pour your pumpkin sauce over the ISOPASTA Fusilli and stir in the fresh sage and turkey bacon. Enjoy!
