  • Start by heating olive oil over medium heat in a 3- or 4-quart saucepan. 
  • Add diced shallot and cook for approximately 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shallot becomes translucent.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, pumpkin puree, parsley, oregano, nutmeg and kosher salt. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on medium to medium-low for 20 minutes. 
  • Turn off the heat and let stand for 1-2 minutes before removing the cover as the sauce will splatter as it cooks due to the thickness. Stir well before serving. Serve and garnish as desired.
