Pumpkin pasta dishes are all the rage when the temperatures dip. There’s just something so cozy and comforting about a hot bowl of noodles smothered in hearty pumpkin sauce. If you’re on  a gluten-free diet, there’s no reason why you have to miss out on the fun. This pumpkin-sage sauce goes particularly well with brown rice penne.

Place a large pot of salted water over high heat to boil. When water boils, add 1 tablespoon of salt and drop in pasta. Cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Add the 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet with pine nuts, onions and garlic. Sautee with salt, sage, pepper and red pepper flakes until soft. Reduce to low heat, then stir in pumpkin broth, remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and the cinnamon or nutmeg.

Toss pasta with sauce until well-combined. Enjoy!
