    10 oz (1.5) Skinless, boneless, chicken breast, cut in strips

    1 shallot, finely diced
    2 garlic cloves, finely diced
    1 tbs apple sauce
    Spices, to taste: nutmeg, cinnamon, sage, salt, oregano, thyme, rosemary, paprika


Cook chicken in large saucepan with 1/4 cup water and poultry seasonings to create chicken stock. Remove from pan. Add applesauce, onions and garlic. Sautee about 3 minutes. In a separate pot, cook pasta according to package directions. Pour wine into the sauce pan and heat until reduced by half. Mix in pumpkin puree, chicken and stock. Once boiled, add milk, nutmeg and cinnamon. Toss in the drained pasta and remove from heat. Don't forget to serve with veggies!
