Pumpkin Penne Pasta Recipe

As you’ve probably noticed with some of my other recent posts, I’m really enjoying recipes that contain pumpkin at the moment.  I hope you enjoy this one as much as my family did last night.

What You Will Need:

–   1 package of penne pasta (you don’t necessarily need penne specifically but it is a favourite of mine)

–   2 Tbsp of olive oil

–   2-3 cloves of grated garlic (depending on how much you like garlic)

–   1 can (roughly 1 ¾ cups) of pumpkin puree

–   ½ cup of heavy cream (if you don’t have any in the house, I have used regular milk)

–   1 tsp of salt

–   1 tsp of crushed red pepper

–   ½ tsp of pepper

–   1 ½ Tbsp of sage

–   ¼ tsp of nutmeg

–   ½ tsp of cinnamon

–   grated parmesan or mozzarella on top


What You Need to do:

1.   Cook the pasta as indicated on the package.

2.   In a skillet, heat the oil and cook the garlic and crushed red pepper, until the garlic has softened.

3.   Stir in the broth, salt, cream and pepper.

4.   Next at the nutmeg, sage and cinnamon.  Let the contents of the skillet simmer, until everything has thickened.  If it doesn’t seem to thicken enough, especially if you are using regular milk instead of cream, add some cheese at this point.

5.   Now all you have to do is mix the sauce with the pasta and serve.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
