Pumpkin Pasta


Tasty! Connor approved!


  • 6 ounces whole wheat penne pasta
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup low sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon margarine
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving


  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.
