Pumpkin Pasta with Baby Spinach


Pumpkin Puree

Olive Oil


Baby Spinach

Vegetable Broth

Red Pepper Flakes Salt & Pepper





Cook the pasta in boiling salted water 1 minute less than the recommended al dente cook time on the package. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water.

Start making the sauce while the pasta is cooking. Warm the olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat.

Sauté the shallots for 3-4 minutes until they start to soften.

Stir in the minced garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Give the shallots 1-2 minutes to become fragrant.

Pour in the pumpkin puree, vegetable broth and milk, stirring to combine. Simmer for 5-7 minutes until slightly thickened.

Stir the pasta into the pumpkin sauce and simmer for 1-2 minutes.

Fold in the spinach, parmesan and walnuts. The heat in the pan will quickly and gently wilt the greens.
