Pumpkin Sage Pasta Sauce is a creamy sage-infused pasta sauce that is made with fresh pumpkin puree for a rich and flavorful pasta sauce.



  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon sage
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup water or milk
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Prepare the ingredients: chop the garlic, sage, and shred the cheese.
  2. Melt one tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium heat with the chopped garlic. Once the butter has melted add the flour and stir until it forms a paste.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and gradually stir in 3/4 cup water or milk stirring constantly until the sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Stir in 1 cup pumpkin puree and 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. Cook the sauce for a few minutes over low heat, then add 1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 tablespoon chopped sage. 
  5. Reduce the heat to low until you are ready to serve it. If the sauce is too thick, use water to make it thinner. 


Pumpkin sauce tastes great on top of your favorite pasta all by itself as a vegetarian main course or with crumbled ground chicken, turkey, sausage, cooked shrimp, grilled or broiled chicken boneless breast.
