Add the onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until onion is tender but not browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in the flour; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Add the milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheeses until melted. Stir in spinach until wilted. Stir in sage, salt, and pepper. Gently stir in cooked pasta and squash until combined. Transfer pasta mixture to a 3-quart baking dish. Cover with foil.
