Add sun-dried tomatoes + 1 tbsp of its oil, garlic, onion and basil to a large pot. Sautée on medium low until soft and fragrant, about 7-8 minutes. Add pumpkin puree and tomato puree, chicken broth, thyme and nutmeg. Simmer for 15 minutes, covered.
Meanwhile, begin with the beef. In a large skillet, heat some oil (oil from the sun-dried tomatoes is fine here), and over medium high heat, brown the minced beef along with the onion, garlic and salt, about 5-7 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Blend the pumpkin sauce, either using an immersion blender or pour it into your blender. Add it back to your large pot. Add the beef mixture. Reheat if needed.
Add in the parmesan, heavy cream and season with salt and pepper. Add the fresh spinach right before serving, and stir until it's wilted.
Serve with freshly cooked pasta and extra parmesan and basil!
Did you make it? Tag @thegingerwithspiceon Instagram, I'd love to see!If you're doubling the sauce recipe to have leftovers, I wouldn't add beef and spinach to the sauce. Just freeze the sauce and make fresh beef and spinach when you're going to eat it. If you happen to make too much, it's fine to freeze the whole thing.
