Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Sauce

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Sauce

Here you have it - the ultimate comfort food. A cozy, creamy, cheesy delicious sauce for your noods made with pumpkin! I have been dying to make a recipe like this for a few weeks now because I was craving this exact meal and I finally did it. I know I am mostly focused on the healthier versions of recipes, but I just gotta sprinkle some classics in here you know?! With all the butter and cheese! So good. It's made with simple, quality, ingredients and tastes AMAZING. Such a great option to serve for a holiday dinner in the next few month. You can enjoy it with any type of noodle you even if you want to get fancy, you can serve with scallops or shrimp. 

What you need:

  • Minced Garlic (I use the one from the Jar)
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Organic Milk (I used 2%)
  • Organic Cream
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Grass Fed Butter (I used Salted)
  • Flour (I used gluten free all purpose)
  • Spices: Turmeric, Sage, Cumin, Onion Powder or Onion Salt, Sea Salt and Pepper
  • Pecorino Cheese or Parmesan Cheese (I grated from the block, but pre-grated works too)
  • Chili Flakes for toppings - Optional
