INGREDIENTS: 

  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup strained tomatoes (tomato puree)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced sage, plus extra for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta to al dente, according to the package instructions
  2. Pour the coconut oil into a large pot over medium heat, and saute the onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 more minute.
  3. Add in the tomato, pumpkin puree, water, salt, cinnamon, and maple syrup and bring the soup to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat and stir in the coconut milk and 1/2 of the minced sage.
  4. Adjust any seasoning to taste and serve warm over your favorite pasta. (I’d recommend preparing a pound of pasta for this amount of sauce.
