Serves 4

4 tablespoons butter

1/2 red onion sliced

A pinch red pepper flakes

2 gloves garlic sliced

1 shot glass amaretto (optional)

1/3 cup crumbled spicy Italian sausage

4 fat sage leaves or 5 to 6 small ones

1 to 2 slices leftover pumpkin pie (pie crust optional)

1 pound whole wheat penne, cooked

Juice of 1 lemon


In a sauté pan, sweat the onion, chili flakes and garlic in the butter.

When the butter is browned, turn off the fire and deglaze the pan with the amaretto. Add the sausage and sage. Add the pie filling and whisk. Add the pasta to the pan and finish by squeezing in some lemon juice.

(Optional: Dry the pie crust in a low oven. Crumble and sprinkle over the pasta.)
