Looking for a savoury take on pumpkin everything? Try this pumpkin sauce spaghetti for an easy weeknight meal. It’s quick and delicious.
So by now you might be thinking, enough with the pumpkin recipes…we get it. Sorry folks, I may have 1 or 2 more up my sleeve before I move on! Plus given the time of year, is there really such a thing as too many pumpkin recipes?
This dish is really the best of the best.
It’s EASY to make, requires practically no prep work (canned pumpkin puree helps with that), and um, it’s pasta. Is it just because I’m Italian, or is pasta seriously the best food in existence? Too much?
Okay fine. You don’t live and breath pasta? This pumpkin sauce is so good, I’ve even tried it mixed with steamed brown rice, and it was yummmmmm! So I definitely recommend using this sauce for multiple different meals. If you need a gluten free option, just sub out the packaged pasta to a gluten free variety that suit your needs! This sauce can easily be used for a variety of meals. I bet it would even taste great on top of grilled chicken. Hmm, I may try that next time.

Delicious Pumpkin Sauce Spaghetti
Delicious pumpkin sauce spaghetti is a super quick and easy weeknight meal using only a few ingredients with a lot of yum!
In a medium sauce pan, add your oil and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes until golden, but do not burn.
Then add the vegetable broth, the pumpkin puree and all the seasonings, and simmer over medium low heat for about 6-8 minutes. Then add your milk and stir to combine. Turn off the heat and keep covered while you make your pasta.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of generously salted water to boil, and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to the pot. Then mix in your pumpkin sauce immediately so the pasta doesn't stick together. You may wish to reserve some of the sauce to garnish each plate, or you can mix it all in, your preference.
Serve garnished with fresh sage if desired.
