  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet; cook and stir onion and garlic until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add zucchini, sage, and thyme; cook and stir until zucchini is slightly tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir pumpkin, ricotta cheese, and white wine into zucchini mixture.

  • Pour pumpkin mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

  • Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over pasta and stir in pumpkin sauce. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 25 minutes.

Partner Tip

It turned out pretty good but there wasn t a whole lot of texture to it so I would recommend only blending half of the pumpkin mixture or adding French fried onions on top. Read More
