If you are looking for a quick meal to make for the family you are going to love this pasta! In less than 30 minutes you can a simple dish!
We obviously love pasta in our house. Remember the steak gorgonzola pasta that I made. Again so easy and so flavorful.
This time I added a little flair of fall by adding the pumpkin.
How to make the sauce?
Right not I am really into creamy sauces over my pasta, and for good reason. It’s easy and flavorful!
This sauce starts off with a base of olive oil and onions. Then I added fresh sage, because my garden is overflowing with it. Next I added the pumpkin, cream and pasta water.
Lastly add some slices of Cabot Vermont Sharp White Cheddar Cheese on top before adding the hot pasta. The cheese gives this a sharp but rich flavor! So good guys!
