Pumpkin and Spinach Pasta Sauce

This is one of my favourite sauces because it is so tasty and you can make it in the time it takes to cook your pasta. It is an excellent one to whip up on a busy work night. We usually serve it with homemade ricotta gnocchi or ravioli. In fact, it is a great meat-free option to have on your meal plan all year round. Serve it with crusty garlic bread during the colder months or with a fresh garden salad in warmer weather. It is so delicious, even the biggest meat lover will not be able to resist. Enjoy!
