Servings: serves 4


  • 16 oz. pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 fresh sage leaves, chopped (plus a few extra for garnish)
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream

  1. Cook your pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Melt your butter over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the garlic and chopped sage to the pan and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes until fragrant and the garlic is golden brown. I put a few full sage leaves into the pan to fry them up for garnish. After a few minutes, use tongs to remove the fried sage leaves from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add the heavy cream, pumpkin puree, and parmesan cheese.
  5. Stir and bring the sauce to a simmer.
  6. Allow to simmer for 7 – 10 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  7. Remove the sauce from heat.
  8. Pour the pasta into the pan and fold everything together to coat the pasta with the sauce.
  9. Plate the pasta and top with additional grated parmesan, cracked black pepper and the fried sage.
