Squash, Sausage and Chard Pasta

I loved this pasta dish, I think squash makes the most awesome pasta sauce and I used some lovely Italian sausages. I'm definitely going to try making some different variations on this.

Squash, Sausage and Chard Pasta (from Green Lite Bites)
(Serves 4)

1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
8 sausages
400ml chicken stock
1-2 acorn squash, peeled and cut into chunks
4 tbsp 0% greek yogurt
1 tsp dried sage
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
salt and pepper
250g whole wheat pasta
100g swiss chard, sliced

Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the squash, cook for 15-20 mins, then drain and puree.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions.

Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a frying pan and brown the sausage with the onion and garlic. Once brown add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

Lower the heat to medium and add the pumpkin, yogurt, sage, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir to combine everything. Keep over a medium heat until the sauce begins to boil again then lower to a simmer.

Drain the pasta and add to the frying pan with the squash and sausage. Stir to coat. Add the chard and stir in until it wilts. Serve.
