Pumpkin Fettuccini Alfredo

When Derek and I first got married I jumped head first into the pumpkin everything craze and bought an entire case of canned pumpkin and made upwards of twenty different pumpkin related desserts that fall. Pumpkin has always been a "sweet" food for me over the years, but lately I've been seeing it in so many savory applications that I've really been wanting to give it a try.

I came across this Pumpkin Fettuccini Alfredo sauce recipe a couple weeks ago and thought that I could make it into an easy weeknight meal solution when paired with No Yolks Broad Noodles. They're my go-to noodle for a lot of different recipes because they're so versatile. No Yolks can be added to an array of dishes from soups, casseroles, and even new and unexpected dishes like Asian inspired stir-frys. Plus, they're a healthy egg noodle alternative since they're made from egg whites only, and have no cholesterol and are low in fat and sodium. No Yolks have lots of different noodles from Borad, to Extra Broad, fine, kluski, dumplings, and even stir-fry! There is a noodle out there for every person and preference.

For this recipe I simply made the sauce in one pot, while the No Yolks Broad noodles cooked away in the other. When both pots were done cooking I drained the noodles, tossed them in with the sauce, added a side of veggies, and we had an easy weeknight meal on the table in 10 minutes flat.

Ingredients:
1 12oz package of No Yolks Broad Noodles
8oz canned pumpkin
1 1/4 c whole milk
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp salted butter
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
pepper to taste

Directions: 
In a large pot of salted water, cook the No Yolks Broad Noodles according to package directions.

While the noodles are cooking, whisk together the milk, parmesan cheese, butter, garlic powder, nutmeg, salt and pepper on medium heat until the cheese is melted and all the ingredients are smooth and and thickened together. At this point, you'll add the pumpkin and continue whisking until heated through.

Once the noodles are done cooking, drain them, and then return them to their original pot. Pour the sauce mixture onto the noodles and then stir until well combined, serve immediately.
