IMG_6443

This is a yummy pasta dish using the last of the season’s best: PUMPKIN!  And it is so easy.  This could also be a wonderful side dish on your Thanksgiving table.  Make the sauce and pour it over orzo for a rice like side dish.  Or serve it over mini shells and let the sauce get stuck inside.  This dish is kid approved with two thumbs up!  Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pasta

2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. flour

1 C. chicken broth

1 C. milk

1/2 C. canned pumpkin (unsweetened)

1 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 C. parmesan

In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter and mix with the flour to make a roux.  Add in the chicken broth and whisk until well combined.  Then add in the milk and do the same.  You should have a creamy looking sauce.  Add the pumpkin, nutmeg, and parmesan cheese.  Mix together until smooth.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  The sauce should have a thick and creamy consistency, kind of like Alfredo sauce.  Pour it over your favorite cooked pasta and enjoy!
