Pumpkin Spice Pasta Recipe

Start by sauteing your onion and garlic. What makes this recipe so popular is the pumpkin spice flavoring. By adding nutmeg and chili powder you bring in the desired spice to the pumpkin. Half & Half does the job of making the sauce creamy.


Once your sauce is complete, pour it over your cooked pasta noodles and top with shredded parmesan cheese and parsley.

To round out this meal you can serve freshly baked pumpkin bread, pumpkin cream cheese cake, and warm pumpkin spice lattes. Add a few small pumpkins to your table for a centerpiece. Happy Fall!
