Add butter, garlic and shallots to your 3.5 Quart Sauté Pan and let cook until fragrant and shallots become caramelized.
Add in pork sausage to your sauté pan and cook until it’s done. (you can double the amount of meat in this if you want a more hearty meal as well)
Once sausage is cooked in pan add seasoning; red pepper flakes, basil and oregano. Blend together and add flour. Once the flour is mixed in well add in 100% Pumpkin pure and vegetable broth stirring to marry together.
While cooking sausage and sauce, if water has come to a boil add in 1 lb of ziti to cook. Once al dente drain your paste. Usually this takes 9-11 minutes
