Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Steam the sprouts according to package directions.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add in the onion, garlic, and sage and sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the onion mixture to a blender or food processor and add in the remaining ingredients: pumpkin, milk, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy and smooth.
Add the sauce in the skillet used to saute the veggies. Place the skillet over medium heat and add in the cheese if using. Stir constantly to combine and cook until warmed through thoroughly and the cheese is fully melted.
Mix in the pasta and steamed brussels sprouts. Serve and ENJOY!
