If you are a pumpkin lover, this recipe is for you. Instead of incorporating pumpkin into a traditional bread or pie, I decided to experiment with creating a creamy pumpkin pasta sauce. The outcome was delicious.

This sauce combines pumpkin, sage and parmesan to create a smooth, creamy comforting Fall sauce. The savory flavors of this sauce pair nicely with the sweet flavors of the apple chicken sausage. This recipe is a perfect, comforting Fall weekend meal. So cozy up on the couch with a warm blanket and big bowl of this Creamy Pumpkin Chicken Sausage Pasta.

Flour and milk create a creamy thick sauce.

Pumpkin, parmesan and sage create hearty and savory flavors in the sauce.

Serve the sauce over your favorite pasta or over spaghetti squash for a lower carb version.
