It’s fall!!!!! It’s been fall for a while hasn’t it? Oh well, whatever. So anyway that means that it is that time of year where we make everything out of pumpkins. Yayay!

Here is a recipe for a wonderfully silky Pumpkin Alfredo. It’s super creamy and EASY AS CAN BE. This is a meal you can serve to guests and its ready in as much time as it takes you to cook the pasta. You could throw together a salad to serve with it – maybe some roasted broccoli if you’re trying to be extra good – and you’re on your way to dinner bliss.

The kiddo loved it.

Pumpkin Alfredo

serves 4

1/2 c. pureed pumpkin

1/2 package Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

1/2 c. plain soy milk

2 cloves garlic

1/2 c. nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp. fresh nutmeg

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

8 oz. whole wheat fettuccine

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. (Please don’t over cook! Cook until al-dente. Most packages tell you how to time that.) Drain and place back into the pot. 
  • Place the remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend until the sauce is nice and smooth. Now taste it to check the seasonings. (Does it need more salt? Pepper?)
  • Pour the sauce over your drained pasta. Heat gently over low heat.
  • Serve and enjoy!!
