It didn't seem like there was anything in the house for a Halloween meal... but lo and behold, we pulled it together. This is a less than 30 minute meal, perfect to whip up before little trick-or-treaters head out. Or after, when you need something to go with a nice glass of red.
Get your pasta water boiling with plenty of salt (it should taste like the sea!)
1 lb orecchiette or pasta of your choice
1 onion, diced
1 Tbsp chopped fresh sage or 1/2 tsp of dried sage
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 15 oz can of pumpkin purée
1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup reserved pasta water
Sautée the onion in 2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter until onions begin to be translucent
Add garlic and sage
Stir in pumpkin, salt and pepper
Add the parmesan, ricotta and reserved pasta water to pumpkin/onion mixture
Stir in pasta and serve.
Garnish with Toasted Walnuts, Chives and additional Grated Cheese
