So everyone wants to eat lighter around here so came up with this light version of pumpkin sauce using cottage cheese instead of cream and going for lots of pumpkin, galic, sage flavor.

Skinny Pumpkin Sage Sauce
5 ingredients only!

1-cup pumpkin pure – I prefer freshly roasted but canned is ok too
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic – peeled and sliced
10 fresh sage leaves- more or less
1-cup low-fat cottage cheese

Sauté garlic in 1 of the tbsp. butter until soft- a minute or 2
Add pumpkin and cook for another minute
Add cottage cheese and cook until heated through
Mix all with an immersion blender or food processor until smooth.
Add sea salt and pepper to taste
Meanwhile sauté the sage leaves in the remaining tbsp. of butter until crisp.
Salt to taste

Cook pasta in boiling, salted water until al dente
Add some pasta cooking water to the sauce to thin it out if needed.
Add your pasta to the sauce and stir until it’s hot and well amalgamated.
Sprinkle sage leaves on top

Buon Appetito!
