Have people reached their pumpkin limit yet? I don’t have a pumpkin limit, so I can’t really tell.

At any rate, it’s always a good time for pasta.

This pumpkin sauce is super simple to make– just throw everything together in a saucepan and simmer until it’s heated– and you can use it on any pasta you have (or veggies, or whatever else you want to cover in pumpkin). I just happened to have a bag of tortellini to use up!

It’s also full of good, wholesome things. The heavy hitter here is the Greek yogurt: it makes the sauce creamy but keeps it light, and also gives it a protein boost.
