what you will need


  • 1 pound fettuccine (reserve 1 cup of pasta water)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • Garlic, minced
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • Salt & Pepper

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Bring a stockpot of water to a boil over high heat. Add a teaspoon of salt to the boiling water, then add fettuccine. Cook until al dente (check package instructions)

Step 2

Meanwhile, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in garlic and cook for about a minute, careful not to burn. Stir in half & half, Parmesan, pumpkin, salt &pepper to taste. Stir until sauce is heated through and cheese is melted. ***For a thinner sauce, stir in pasta water, about 1/4 cup at a time, until sauce is desired consistency. (I choose NOT to do this) 

Step 3

Add pasta and cook over medium-high heat until sauce is smooth and pasta is well coated; about 1-2 minutes.

Step 4

 Divide into bowls and garnish with fresh chopped parsley and fresh grated Parmesan.
