Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray it with non-stick spray and brown the porkey mixture with the onions and garlic. Once browned, add the chicken broth and frozen spinach and bring to a boil.

Lower to medium heat and then add the pumpkin, yogurt, sage, nutmeg and ground pepper. Stir. Wait till sauce boils again and then reduce heat to a simmer.

Add cooked pasta to the skillet and stir to combine everything. Serve with a dusting of parmesan cheese and enjoy! (Servings: 5)
