Pumpkin Chipotle Pasta Sauce

Rated as 4.26 out of 5 Stars
4

"A little sweet with some heat! This sauce is velvety and gives the look and feel of a rich, fattening sauce. You can adjust the heat by cutting/adding more chipotle to preference...Once served over pasta, you can add Parmesan cheese and red pepper to taste."

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, and bring to a boil; whisk in the pumpkin puree, chipotle peppers and their sauce, milk, sage, salt, coriander, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Allow sauce to come to a simmer, then lower heat to hold at a simmer until serving time.

Unique creamy sauce if you like pumpkin; so easy. Although you can't detect the cinnamon, it's definitely a must. I added extra chipotle. I liked it! Thanks Kristincsw!
