Today I’m sharing with you one more fall flavor recipe inspired on my last pumpkin sauce recipe creamy Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce Pasta, which was a hit in my home. I love this pumpkin sauce that I learned how to do on the blog Tastes Lovely. It is very easy to make, quick and also very tasty. Even if you don’t like much pumpkin you will enjoy this sauce for sure. I guarantee especially because my husband is a very picky eater and he hates pumpkins but I was surprised to see him eating and asking for more when I made this pumpkin sauce with pasta. Here are 8 Pumpkin Sauces You Need to Make This Fall that I promise you picky eats will love as well!

I really couldn’t believe it. I was even more surprised when few weeks ago his cousins came to town from Montreal and I asked him what to make for dinner and he said to me: “Why don’t you make that dish with pumpkin sauce?” I thought “what? Am I really hearing what I am hearing, right now?” So, if you don’t like pumpkin you can definitely start to try it with this sauce. I am sure you will enjoy it. Just for the record, after making this pumpkin sauce dish, I also made this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with pumpkin sauce and again my husband ate 4 of them. Not bad, right?

For this recipe you will need to buy a pumpkin puree can, which is so easy to find everywhere at this time of the year or you can make your own pumpkin puree (then use it to make this Paleo Chocolate Pumpkin Cake and .Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread year-round!!) So, now you don’t have any excuse not to try this sauce. And for the rest of the ingredients I am sure you have all of them on hands because you only will need garlic, onions, half & half cream, Parmesan and salt and pepper. Easy!! This dish is even tastier because you will put this sauce on top of cheese tortellini. Who doesn’t like tortellini? I bet this dish will be a winner at your place too. Enjoy! And if you have extra tortellini in your freezer, you should try this Kale Tomato Tortellini Soup!
