Delicious is not always Pretty: Pumpkin Sauce for Noodles

Mmm! This was delish and comforting at the end of a long day.

Inspired by this recipe on a favorite blog, I made this sauce tonight and served it with pre-cooked spaghetti squash. NH had real spaghetti and both versions were very tasty with some parmesan cheese on top.

If you think this sounds strange please give it a try before you judge. It has a subtle exotic flavor and an intriguing sweet-savory essence. The recipe made 3 ample servings.

Pumpkin Sauce

1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup light coconut milk
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
a pinch of parmesan cheese

Whisk all ingredients together over medium heat. Toss with pasta or squash, and top with parmesan cheese.


I debated the vegetables to add in- roasted brussel sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms- but decided the to go with the original and used shrooms and spinach.

leftovers to be consumed at a later date . . .

Yum! I'm all for anything with pumpkin! I use to always feel forced to make dinners that worked for both Josh and I. Now I do what you do, make 1 base that we both share and deviations for each of us :)
