Pumpkin Sage Cream Sauce

While perusing Not Martha, I found a link to a new (to me) blog...Posie Gets Cozy and she had a link to a really scrumptious looking recipe...so I decided to try it...

Pumpkin Sage Cream Sauce
yield 1 1/4 cups

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
16 fresh sage leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter

Combine the cream, pumpkin puree, Parmesan cheese, sage, salt & pepper in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the mixture is slightly thickened - 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Toss with pasta and serve immediately.

I tried the sauce with rigatoni first and loved it...then two days later, I used the sauce with Trader Joe's Potato and Cheddar Perogis. I have to say, I liked this combo even better. Something about the potato and cheddar brought out the flavor of the pumpkin and sage more so than the pasta. I would definitely recommend this if you are a pumpkin fan.

I have been eyeing this recipe for ages and I finally tried it tonight.

I tried it with the rigatoni, with excellent results. I will have to try it in the future using your suggestion of the potato and cheddar perogies.

I love your blog Elizabeth!
