  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green onions and garlic until tender, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in pumpkin puree; cook for 2 minutes.

  • Mix milk, water, salt, cumin, white pepper, and allspice into pumpkin mixture and simmer over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.

Cook's Note:

I used this sauce over some chocolate pasta I had. Though I probably didn't add enough sugar to the water, so get a sweet pasta, it did give a nice contrast, which regular pasta wouldn't have.
