{Pumpkin} Pasta Dish

On Valentine's day I shared with you that Nathan made a delicious pasta dish with some pumpkin puree. Now, I really like pumpkin but I am picky if there is too much. This dish had the exact amount it needed to give it the pumpkin flavor without it being over-bearing.

 It's also the easiest dish ever. You just have to throw some stuff in a pan and wait until it thickens.
This is the BEST homemade sauce I have ever tried. I couldn't resist making it again a week after our Valentine's date and it was just as good as the first time. Enjoy friends! :)

 Gather all your ingredients and take a picture for your blog.

Measure out your yummy ingredients.

Stick em' all in a sauce pan (except butter) and simmer until sauce thickens. (10-12 minutes)

Be sure to throw some bread sticks in the oven!
Go outside & take some pretty pictures since the lighting is better.

What's in it:
1 Cup Heay cream
1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/4 Cup Fresh Parmesan (or not, I only had the grated)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp unsalted butter 
*Recipe calls for sage leaves but we left them out & loved it

How to make it:
Combine all ingredients, except butter, in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Simmer until sauce thickens (about 10-12 minutes) Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted
Toss with your favorite noodles and serve with some garlic bread sticks.

Original Recipe can be found here.

  2. This sounds SO good! I'd have to add some kind of meat into it or my husband wouldn't like it! haha! BUT I WOULD!

  3. Welcome welcome to the AZ blogger meetup group!! So glad you found us. You for sure have to come to the next event Camille and I plan in May. Also, this blog post made me hungry. haha

  4. This looks DELICIOUS! Sadly I don't think my pumpkin-hating husband would eat it though.

    Found my way here through the AZ blogger meet up page!
