I have always been a big fan of baking with pumpkin. I’ve got recipes for pumpkin bread, pumpkin coffee cake, and even pumpkin cobbler. I was intrigued when I saw a recipe for pumpkin pasta in one of my Taste of Home cookbooks. I decided to give it a try.

I tweaked it to fit my family’s taste, and I was pleasantly surprised. Savory pumpkin is actually fabulous! I had one son who wasn’t a big fan. That was just because he knew there was pumpkin in it, and he said that was just weird. If I wouldn’t have told him, I don’t think he would have loved it. He still ate it, it just wasn’t his favorite.

This savory Pumpkin Pasta is so easy to make and so delicious!

My husband and I on the other hand, both loved it! And the rest of the kids finished their plates, so I call that a win. The sausage adds great flavor, and gives it just a bit of a kick. You could always add some red pepper flakes if you wanted to knock up the heat just a bit.

I love using chicken base for all my recipes that call for chicken broth. You can substitute canned chicken broth or use chicken bouillon if you prefer. You’ll have great results with any of them. I hope you give this recipe a try!
