Pumpkin Fettuccine

Pumpkin Fettucini

Don’t say I didn’t warn you- for me Fall signals the start of eating all things pumpkin. So far this October I have enjoyed pumpkin spice cupcakes, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin donuts, so why not try a hearty pumpkin pasta recipe next?  This is the perfect meal to transition into the Fall flavor palette- creamy Alfredo like sauce coupled with seasonal spices, hello dinner!  The pasta was so good, I split the one serving of leftovers I had so I could enjoy it twice at work this week.
