In a large dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and saute until aromatic, about 1-2 minutes.
Add the ground beef and brown, breaking up with a wooden spoon; it should take about 5 minutes to cook through.
Add tomatoes, pumpkin, thyme and oregano and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook your pasta of choice (I recommend gluten-free penne or spiralized veggies) according to package directions. Drain and add to your sauce. Toss to combine.
Garnish with freshly chopped sage and grated parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy!
