Pasta Squiggles with Pumpkin Sauce
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
We had this as part of our Halloween meal prior to trick or treating. It was so yummy! My kids loved it and it is something I will keep in my meal rotation. It's great for anytime, not just Halloween!
I never know what to do with the leftover can of pumpkin. This dish was a great use for that. The pasta was creamy without being over the top with Pumpkin flavor.
This was a pretty good meal! The pumpkin flavor wasn't overpowering at all. In fact, I might add a bit more "pumpkin-y" spice to it next time. The red peppers gave it just the right amount of sweetness. Don't forget the parmesan, because it really helps bring out the flavor. I paired this with apple & onion flavored sausage. It made a lot, so next time I'll cut the recipe in half. Overall, a good "something different" recipe!Update: Made this again and it was still a good solid meal. I tried adding in tiny bit of pumpkin pie spice but I didn't really taste a difference. Next time I'll try adding in even more and maybe upping the amount of canned pumpkin and cream. I'm sticking by my original 4-star review. Would still make this again.
