Cheezy Sage Pumpkin Sauce

I won’t complain for one second about the abundance of pumpkins in my life lately.  Yesterday while picking up our CSA share and visiting the goats, Farmer Mark told us we could help ourselves to a pile of pumpkins that had lost their stems and needed to be eaten ASAP.  So today, Leif, Geo and I cooked that pumpkin up and made something a little out of the ordinary– Cheezy Pumpkin Sauce!  I started with a recipe from Ohsheglows.com and worked from there!  I love how it turned out!  I mixed it with  whole wheat penne but it would also be yummy on rice or quinoa or any grain of your liking!

How cute are these chefs?
