Cauliflower-Pumpkin Pasta

Mmmmmmm! I thought I hated cauliflower...this was really, really delicious-not too bad for you and very easy to whip up! The recipe is another one from Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Get Real Meals.
Cauliflower-Pumpkin Pasta

2 T. olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 large head cauliflower, chopped into florets
1 c. chicken stock or broth
1/2 pound pasta (I used whole wheat penne)
1 c. pumpkin puree (*not pumpkin pie filling)
1/4 c. cream or half and half
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
3 T. chopped fresh sage leaves (I used 1 t. dried)

Preheat large skillet over medium heat. Add oil and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add cauliflower and stir to coat with oil and garlic. Add stock and bring to a boil. Place lid on pan and simmer for 15 minutes, or until tender.

Boil water for pasta. Add pasta and cook to al dente.

Once pasta is cooked and cauliflower is tender, add pumpkin and cream to cauliflower. Heat through. Drain pasta and add to cauliflower and pumpkin. Add cheese, salt, pepper and sage. Toss with pasta and serve with extra Parmesan to top.
