Harvest Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce

Is it just me, or do you feel like Thanksgiving is often overlooked? I mean between Halloween, Christmas, and New Years, there is barely enough time to breathe, let alone decorate your house with turkeys! I guess that is why the holidays, although being the most magical and heartwarming time of year, are also the most stressful!

You must try to understand my shock when I finally looked up and realized that the Fall foods were rapidly leaving the shelves, being replaced by gingerbread, eggnog, and everything spiced. So as you could probably guess, I rushed to the store to buy a can pumpkin puree, determined to finish this season off with a bang!

There isn’t another sauce out there that embodies the taste of Fall quite like this pumpkin alfredo! With its creamy base and Pumpkin-y notes, you will be wishing it was Fall all year round!


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 TBS Salted Butter
  • 1 TBS Minced Garlic
  • 1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Cup Half and Half
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2-4 TBS Pasta Water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. After you have cooked your pasta noodles, set aside a little bit of pasta water
  2. Sautee butter and garlic in a skillet on low heat until fragrant
  3. Add in the pumpkin puree and half and half (make sure to frequently stir)
  4. Once that is combined, add in your Parmesan cheese (keep stirring)
  5. Once that has completely incorporated, start to add in the pasta water (or plain water) until you reach your desired consistency. and simmer on low until fully incorporated
  6. Mix your pumpkin sauce with pasta for a delicious Fall themed meal
