This creamy, flavourful pasta dish is a wonderfully warming treat for the autumn months, and it’s easy to make.

It’s filled with the comforting flavours of garlic and sage, and it’s a great way to use up leftover pumpkin after carving a Jack O’Lantern.

Alternatively, use canned pumpkin puree and you can enjoy this comforting fall treat all year round!

How to cook a carved pumpkin

Making the pumpkin puree for this recipe couldn’t be more simple. You only need one ingredient – the pumpkin!

Simply boil, steam, or roast your carved out pumpkin pieces until they’re nice and tender, then puree the pieces in a food processor, blender, or with a stick blender.

You can add a pinch of salt or a smidge of seasoning (like cinnamon, ginger, cumin, or nutmeg) if you like, but this pumpkin pasta recipe adds plenty of flavour to a plain puree.

Which pasta should I use?

You can use any pasta you like for this dish! But remember, not all pasta is vegan so always read the label.

We’ve used a long linguine for this dish but you can use your favourite pasta shape. It also works well for whole wheat pasta, gluten-free pasta, and vegetable-based pasta (like spinach pasta, or lentil pasta).

For a really satisfying dish, you could also use this sauce for a plant-based ravioli dish.
