- 1 (16-ounce) box gluten-free elbow or penne noodles
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic , minced
- ½ large onion , diced
- 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh sage, divided
- ¾ cup milk or dairy-free milk of choice
- ¾ cup pumpkin puree
- ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt, plus more for the water

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain, reserving about ½ cup pasta cooking water
In a medium-sized skillet, sauté garlic and onion in olive oil for 3-5 minutes. Add half the sage and heat for another minute. Reduce heat to low and add milk and pumpkin. Stir gently to combine ingredients. Allow mixture to simmer until flavors are well combined, about 8-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper, stir to combine, and remove from heat.
Add cooked pasta and reserved pasta water. Add pine nuts (if using) and top with the remaining sage and the grated Parmesan (if desired).
