Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe was a nice way to use up some extra pumpkin we had available. Served it to one person who really enjoys pumpkin (myself) and one who doesn't, and both came away really liking it! Has enough flavor that the pumpkin makes itself known, but not so much that it overpowers the alfredo flavor or texture. Recipe makes enough to toss with one cooked 12 oz. box of pasta."

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir sage leaves in hot butter until the butter takes on the sage flavor, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk cream, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and Parmesan cheese into the butter; cook until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a thinner sauce use milk instead of cream. Recipe makes enough to toss with one cooked 12-ounce box of pasta.
  • Some may wish to remove the sage leaves before serving as they can be pretty strong, but it's not necessary if you like them.

Delicious! I was surprised at how tasty it was since it my husband who is the pumpkin fan. Made a couple of minor changes: 3 TBSP butter instead of 2, and I used 2/3 cup parmesan since that i...

Good recipe! I modified slightly, based on ingredients on hand. Used half & half instead of cream, rubbed sage instead of fresh and added a bit of garlic (it is alfredo sauce after all). Served ...

I pretty much followed the recipe as written but I did substitute poultry seasoning dry herb blend for the sage leaves. Came out smooth and creamy but lacked any real cheese flavor. I make aga...
