Pumpkin Pasta

recipe image
“Pumpkin puree is turned into a creamy, smooth sauce with just a hint of cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Toss with whole wheat pasta and Parmesan cheese, and you’ve got a kid-pleasing meal in under 30 minutes.”

INGREDIENTS:
6 ounces whole wheat penne pasta
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup nonfat milk
1 teaspoon margarine
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground cloves
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground ginger
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus
more for serving
DIRECTIONS:
1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
2. Heat the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, milk, margarine, onion powder, black pepper, salt, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger in a large skillet over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the drained pasta, and toss with the Parmesan cheese.
