Cozy pumpkin pasta carbonara with crispy sage is the perfect fall pasta to get you out of your pasta cooking rut!
Have you ever tried pasta carbonara? It’s a classic Italian pasta dish made from a sauce with whole eggs, egg yolks, and cheese. You’ll whisk these ingredients together, and then add a little bit of pasta water to create a sauce.
Today, I had a whole can of pumpkin opened that I needed to use, and I just couldn’t think of what to make of it.
I normally associate pumpkin with sweets, but I really wanted something savory.
I thought about the pancetta I had in my fridge, waiting to be rendered. And the last few eggs from last week’s grocery trip.
And BAM! That’s when I thought of pumpkin pasta carbonara, and this recipe was born.
