Pasta is one of my go to dishes for a quick weeknight meal and this pumpkin penne with peas, Parmesan, and sage is no exception. The best part of this dish aside from that we will all eat it is it feels fancy enough for a date night at home even though it’s easy enough for a 30 minute weeknight meal. That’s what happens when you use good ingredients and let their flavors shine through. Easy fancy goodness.

This is one of those pumpkin dishes my whole family including my pumpkin reluctant husband and my picky little Goose will eat. In fact, Goose flung a very minimal amount at the starving Labrador who was sitting eagerly at the base of the high chair. If that’s not proof that’s there magic in savory pumpkin dishes then I don’t know what is.

This pumpkin penne is creamy and delicious. This autumnal take on fettucine Alfredo is to die for. I mean really, how can you go wrong with a lightly sweet but mostly savory pumpkin cream sauce bursting with fresh garlic, sage, and chives? It’s downright impossible. Add in some Parmesan and OMG magic. In pasta form.
