Catch ‘Em, Clean ‘Em & Eat ‘Em:

Pasta With Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce:

  • Kosher salt
  • 2 9-ounce packages cheese tortellini
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta.

Meanwhile, heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook, about 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and nutmeg and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in the cream and bring to a low boil. Reduce the heat to medium low; simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and cook until thick.
