Tagliatelle with Baked Pumpkin
and Brown Sage Butter


The Great Pumpkin

This Tagliatelle with Baked Pumpkin recipe is perfect for the fall season. Every once in a while I like to try something completely out of the ordinary.

Being close to Halloween I figured pumpkin would be a nice change. Pumpkin, whether fresh or canned, is excellent in other dishes besides pie. It makes a great soup and is delicious with pasta. This recipe can also be made with acorn or butternut squash if you wish.

The sage butter sauce that is mixed in with the Tagliatelle with Baked Pumpkin gives the whole dish a perfect flavor I’m sure you’ll enjoy.


  • 1 medium size pumpkin, skinned, seeded and cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 of a fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1 pound of Tagliatelle
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 4 Tbls of butter
  • 1 Tbls of extra virgin olive oil
