Ingredients

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 cups butternut squash cubed
  • 1 jar Prego Alfredo sauce
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 oz fresh pasta
  • 2 tbs butter
  • Fresh sage
  • 2 cups leftover cooked turkey or chicken cut into bite-sized pieces and heated through
  • teas freshly grated nutmeg
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for topping if desired

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the butternut squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, stirring once halfway through cook time.
  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water per directions on the package for al dente.

  • Toss the pasta with the pumpkin alfredo sauce and stir in the butternut squash and turkey.
