Sometimes I just put EVOO and a little parmesan and/or tomatoes on top of pasta. It's yummy and less messy than tomato sauce.

I'm not sure if Pesto counts as nontraditional, so I will go with my other number one pick of Peanut Sauce, It is great on Pasta, chicken, Tofu, Veggies, just about everything. YUMMY.

Olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes is a great pasta topping/sauce--it's traditionally Italian, but not the standard red sauce that is most common in the US!

OMG, as they say! I can't imagine how good this will be. If I don't win a case I may have to buy one.

I would say a tahini based sauce similar to pumpkin hummus

Our recent favorite non-traditional pasta sauce is one that uses our fresh from the farm butternut squash. Our eldest daughter dislikes "red sauce" and grooves to a less acidic butternut sauce. Our 3 other kids like a mix of both on their plate! (Red tomatoes with butternut squash.) I am eager to try the Tuscany Pumpkin Pasta Sauce with our gluten free quinoa pasta!

Goat cheese makes a good, creamy, easy sauce when mixed with a little pasta cooking water.

My favorite non-traditional pasta sauce may seem a little nutty - I make a fig, walnut, and proscuitto cream sauce and serve it over whole wheat penne or rigatoni. It is to die for!

Almost anything loaded with garlic. And I do mean loaded. Just give me garlic on my pasta.... and I'll be very happy.

Well here's my favorite sauce. I roast a bunch of vegetables. Orange or Red Peppers, Eggplant, Onions, Garlic, Zucchini, Carrot, then maybe add in some spinach, to a jar of homemade, canned tomatoes from the garden, or a big can of crushed tomatoes that I have in the pantry or just canned tomato sauce, add some Italian seasoning and it makes the best tasting sauce you ever had. All the different veggies makes a wonderful flavor combination and OH SO HEALTHY!

A favorite sauce of my daughters is a butter sage sauce poured over fresh squash gnocchi.

What favorite non-traditional pasta sauce is made with whatever is in the garden (or frozen from the garden's bounty). Sometimes I start by roasting the veggies, other times by experimenting with different herb pestos. I love to use fall flavors - squashes, leeks, etc. - so I know I'd love the pumpkin pasta sauce!

My fave go-to non traditional sauce is a creamy roasted red pepper sauce. Would love to see a case of this in my pantry though! I tried this at a store tasting recently and it's fantastic!

Olive oil, garlic and fresh parmigiano-reggiano...

Hmm, favorite non-traditional would have to be a "no sauce." That's where I just chop up fresh tomatoes, add a bit of olive oil, sea salt, pepper and fresh basil to pasta!

I was sick most of the month of October. My husband went to WF to get me some soup and saw this product. Since I love pumpkin he picked it up thinking it was a soup. He was surprised to find out it was a sauce. We haven't used it as a sauce yet, but as a soup, it was fantastic. Particularly to someone who needed something with lots of flavor to spice up being sick.

I love a garlic scape pesto in the spring...but I'm thinking that this sauce could be a new favorite. Topper for a pizza with sliced leeks & carmelized onions?

I love lemon, olive oil and freshly grated parmesan chees on pasta......sometimes I will add black olives...great favor.

Coconut milk based sauce: I like to create a base of tomatoes, onions, chillies and then use coconut milk to the base. When reduced this makes a great topping for the pasta.

I want recipes for everyone's delicious-sounding sauces! My traditional sauce has lots of veggies, tomatoes and red wine. My non-traditional sauce has artichokes and crushed red peppers. This pumpkin sauce I am going to try with mushroom ravioli!

My favorite topping is fresh sage and butter. When I put it on butternut squash ravioli it is fantastic.
