Penne with Pumpkin Cream Sauce

Thank you everyone for all your sweet and inspiring comments on all the Halloween Posts. October is almost over, and thank goodness, because I am almost out of Halloween projects. I make this yummy pasta every year because it has such a unique and flavorful sauce.

I also have some adorable "pumpkin" peppers to share with you. My sweet aunt sent me a spoof of my blog for some fun peppers. They are precious and so clever.


1 bag of penne pasta
2 Tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped,
Salt and Pepper
Garlic salt to taste
Parsley to taste
Pumpkin puree 15 oz
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


1. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta until al dente.
2. Melt butter on medium-low. Add onion, salt and pepper. Cook 5-6 minutes until softened.
3. Stir in the pumpkin and heavy cream. Bring to a slow rolling boil.
4. Add the pasta to pumpkin cream mixture and toss.
5. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan, parsley, and garlic salt to taste.
6. Enjoy!
