This healthy recipe for gluten free creamy pumpkin pasta sauce is so easy to make! You can have a simple homemade sauce ready for dinner quickly. With a few healthy ingredients and gluten free pasta you can have a weeknight meal on the table in no time!



1 cup Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Vegetable Broth
4 ounces Cream Cheese
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Dried Rosemary
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
12 ounce package Gluten Free Shells Pasta


In a saucepan on medium heat add the pumpkin puree, vegetable broth, cream cheese, olive oil, dried rosemary, sea salt and pepper. Heat until lightly boiling while stirring constantly. 

Once the ingredients have all melted together and creamy smooth sauce has formed add the parmesan cheese and stir in until melted completely.

Take the sauce off of the heat.

In a stockpot boil water with a teaspoon of sea salt. Cook the pasta per the instructions on the package.

Drain the pasta and then add it to your pasta. Stir thoroughly to coat the pasta with sauce.

Serve immediately while hot. You can add some extra grated parmesan cheese as a topping.


I like to use full fat cream cheese. I find it melts easier and more consistently.
