Pumpkin Penne with sausage

Scare your family tonight with how eerily awesome this is!!!

3/4 cup uncooked penne pasta
2 Italian sausage links, casings removed
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp olive oil
1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
1 bay leaf
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin puree
3 tsp minced fresh sage, divided
1/8 tsp each salt, pepper and ground cinnamon
Dash ground nutmeg
3 tbsp half-and-half cream
2 tbsp shredded Romano cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles.  Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.  Discard all but 1 tsp drippings.  Cook and stir onion and garlic in oil and reserved drippings over medium-high heat until tender.  Add wine (or 1/3 cup broth) and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.  Stir in broth (3/4 cup), pumpkin, 1-1/2 tsp sage and remaining seasonings; cook 1 minute longer.  Add the cream and sausage; heat through.  Remove by leaf.  Drain pasta; transfer to a large bowl.  Add sausage mixture; toss to coat.  Sprinkle with cheese and remaining sage.
