My grandmother used to make this butternut squash pasta sauce with pine nuts. She would serve it over homemade gnocchi. It is absolutely delicious and one of the many reasons that I love fall.

I love to make my own pasta sauces...I use diced roasted canned tomatoes and add a variety of in season veggies....asparagus, green beans, swiss chard, kale, zucchini, yellow squash etc. I also use fresh herbs that I grow like sage, basil, rosemary and oregano. I serve it over black bean pasta as I follow a grain free diet because of my health issues. Delicious!

I like nice and simple sauces. A few cans of crushed tomatoes and some fresh herbs is all I really need.

My favorite non-traditional pasta sauce is a combination of pureed butternut squash, ricotta cheese and tarragon.

I think this actually might be really traditional, but my sister in law once served gnocchi in a blue cheese sauce that was only gorgonzola and cream. It was simple, but amazing.

Slathering pasta with my home made, thick and spicy red pepper and artichoke sauce is to live for!

My daughter makes her own all raw tomato sauce in our blender. It's heirloom tomatos, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, garlic, basil, minced onion, olive oil... Blend & voila! It's a little brownish, but delish!

I recently bought a vitamix blender from whole foods after watching the demonstrations and sampling all the tastey foods. I loved the idea of eating foods like taco soup and pasta that were still considered raw. In my new vitamix, I make a homemade pasta sauce using heirloom tomatoes and basil.

My favorite non-traditional sauces are some of the successful experiments i've had, one unique blend is my balsamic vinegar, tomatillo and onion sauce. The amounts have to be just right to balance these tastes. This is a variation most people may not be used to, be it is a nice change once in a while.
