    dcwang wang's Note:

    No cream in a creamy pasta sauce! Can be vegan! at the bottom is my variationI used sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin and soy milk instead of milk. Although the recipe is for four servings, it can be easily made for one person, or more than four.I made it sweet instead by adding a packet of sweet n low. This comes from a Japanese website. Thanks, Mianbao for translating from Japanese to English. I just had to post the recipe because I know people are trying to eat healthy.

      This has a suprisingly wonderful taste and texture to it. It was very quick and easy to make. I had a lot of canned pumpkin to get rid of and this was a great veggie meal.

      I really enjoyed this made with yams. If you try them I highly recommend you pick a tpe that does not have mealy flesh or you'll have mealy sauce. The directions mention adding consomme but it's not listed in the ingredients. I added about 1 cup. I'm looking forward to trying this beautiful-looking sauce made with pumpkin. What a treat, dcwang wang.
