"A little sweet with some heat! This sauce is velvety and gives the look and feel of a rich, fattening sauce. You can adjust the heat by cutting/adding more chipotle to preference...Once served over pasta, you can add Parmesan cheese and red pepper to taste."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

minced sweet onion
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
I have made this recipe at least 5 times already and I just found it last month. It is excellent, and I love how you can turn up/down the heat factor with the amount of chipotle peppers you add. I love spicy food, so I always add extra, but for those who don't do spicy like that, you can decrease what you add without compromsing the flavor. The pumpkin adds such a great counter to the chipotle. I have played around with the recipe the last two times I made it, and I've found that making a roux first helps with a thick sauce. I saute the onions and garlic in butter (maybe about 1/4 cup) and then add flour to make a thick paste. I then continue on with the recipe by adding the chicken broth, etc. Great recipe either way!
This was pretty good. Spicy if you follow the ingredients though... Even for me. I love spicy food but I also don't want it to overpower my dish. I added some sourcream (about half a cup) and brown sugar (about a 1/4 cup or less maybe) to counteract the heat. Served over whole wheat pasta with sauteed red peppers. Delish! I recommend cutting the heat, but otherwise, very tasty dish that can easily be made vegetarian.
I actually made this in a slow cooker: no butter, did the onions in the chicken broth first, then followed instructions as listed. I used Radiatore pasta.
This has a big (and YUMMY) kick, but if you don't handle spicy well, you could half the chipotle. Also, if you wanted some protein, this would pair well with chicken.
Great for a fall twist on pumpkin, but I will be making this year round!
I liked this quite a bit. I added more onion because I like it and didnt realize until the very end I was out of coriander! Very tasty sauce and a nice change from a tomao based one.. healthy too. I'll def make again!
Instead of using the peppers in sauce, I used 1/2 tsp. chipotle pepper seasoning, water instead of broth, and used soy milk instead of cow's milk. Once you accustom yourself to the spiciness of the sauce, it is great! I prefer this to a tomato based sauce on homemade noodles!
As is, this was way too spicy. The sage was overpowering. I fixed it by adding another cup of chicken broth and another cup of milk. After simmering for another 5 minutes, this tasted wonderful. I recommend cutting all of the spices in half.
This was really, really good. Served it with poached chicken and fettucini. The spice level was intense but eating it slowly plus a nice glass of wine with dinner helped cut the burn. I'll definitely make this again - I can imagine it being amazing on pork chops, I don't think this is limited to pasta!
I am sitting here eating this and it's so good, I had to rate it before I was even finished! To make it vegan, I omitted the butter (used olive oil spray) and chicken broth (used vegan chix flavored). I used fat free soy milk, too. I also used about 3/4 of an onion, chopped. I started making this before realizing I didn't have any sage or coriander, so I just used Italian blend instead. I served it over whole wheat penne. My throat is feeling the heat and I am loving this! For anyone on weight watchers, making it without the butter makes this a Core recipe! Bonus :)
