I intended to make exactly as written; however at the last minute I discovered I was out of sage so I used sage flavored sausage instead of using another meat. I may put a touch less salt next time though it was fine as is just personal preference. I used only 1 cup chicken broth as I preferred a thicker sauce. We put it on whole grain pasta with lentils. Excellent for pre-Circleville Pumpkin Show fare. Read More

Amazing sauce! Crowd favorite! Not too pumpkiny but has a definite fall feel to it which is very much welcome during the fall and winter seasons. Read More

Tasty and very easy to make. We like a thicker sauce so I only used 1/2 cup of broth. I didn't have fresh sage or thyme so I put in a tsp. of dried sage and a bit of dried thyme when I added the rest of the ingredients. The family loved it over gnocchi. Read More

I used homemade pumpkin puree which was more liquid than canned. I only needed about 1/2 cup of broth. This is nice with egg noddles. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I read all the reviews and thought I would give it a try as I love pumpkin. I used almond milk but other wise followed the recipe. I too thought it was lacking something. Was not sure what.... This may sound crazy but I added sugar in the raw and it was divine. Read More

I didn t care for this recipe as is. I thought it was too pumpkiny tasting and lacked flavor. Ultimately I found a pumpkin sauce recipe in budget bytes and I added the spices listed in that recipe to this recipe to add flavor. I ended up adding garlic powder nutmeg more salt black pepper and cayenne pepper. chilli powder was suggested but I didn t have any on hand. The final dish was very liked by most but this recipe as is is lacking flavor in my opinion. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. Honestly, found it because I needed a way to use up a can of pumpkin puree. I happened to notice another review mentioning the use of sage sausage, which was brilliant. I got some from a local butcher and mostly followed the recipe, using Silk heavy cream (non dairy). Very yummy and I enjoyed the leftovers also. Would make this again if I have pumpkin on hand!

this was outstanding! I did have to use coconut milk instead of cream to keep it lactose free but the seasonings were great! I will definitely make this again! Read More
