Quick Pumpkin Pasta

Pumpkin Pasta

Now that it feels like Fall outside, I’m up for making anything and everything pumpkin-flavored.  This quick and healthy pasta dish is a great go-to Fall weeknight dinner. Bursting with pumpkin, sage, and mushroom flavor, the only real labor involved is chopping some veggies. What’s better than that on a busy weeknight?!

  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp sage, chopped
