Pumpkin is often seen in desserts, but I wanted to change it up and use it in a pasta recipe to truly show its worth. I made this with cheese-filled pasta, but you can use any other kind you prefer. Your own inspiration will make for a delicious recipe as well.

  • The stuffing of 6 spicy Italian sausages
  • A few sage leaves, minced
Sauce

  • 4 cups of fresh pumpkin
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 1/4 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 3 fresh sage leaves
  • Salt & pepper, as preferred

Steps

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then bake the pasta following the instruction on the box. Strain then set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot, on medium heat, then soften the onion and the fresh pumpkin for 8 minutes.
