Directions for: Halloween Pumpkin Pasta


250 g pasta

salt and pepper

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp fresh rosemary

1 can (400 mL) pumpkin purée

1 clove garlic, minced

½ cup half-and-half cream

1 Tbsp white wine vinegar

1 ½ tsp paprika

2 - 3 pinches nutmeg

1 shallot, minced


1. Start off by cooking your pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until the pasta reaches its desired tenderness.

2. While the pasta is cooking, in a large sauce pan, fry the fresh rosemary in olive oil for 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Once is begins to brown remove the rosemary from your pan onto paper towel.

3. In the same pan, add in the pumpkin purée, garlic, half-and-half, white-wine vinegar, paprika, nutmeg and shallot. Cook the sauce, stirring regularly for about 3-5 minutes until the ingredients have combined and the sauce has warmed through.

4. Season to taste with salt & pepper (feel free to add more half-and-half if the sauce is too thick).

5. Once the sauce has finished, add in the rosemary and pasta, stir and serve!
