In a Dutch oven or large sauté pan combine pasta, squash, shallot, garlic, stock, cream, butter, salt, pepper and 3 chopped sage leaves. Bring mixture to boil, reduce heat to medium; cook at a gentle boil 12-to-15 minutes, stirring frequently until pasta and squash are cooked through and sauce has reduced somewhat and begins to thicken. Remove from heat. Add Parmesan and mix well (the sauce will thicken more). Garnish with chopped sage and serve immediately
