Please NOTE, this recipe does not include the time to make Pumpkin Puree.

10 Minute Pumpkin Alfredo

I did use my own pumpkin but you can buy the stuff if you really got to.  This recipe only uses a 1/2 cup serving of pumpkin.  I made a big batch just over a week ago and still have some in the fridge.  Pumpkin Puree will keep It will keep up to two weeks in the  fridge and you can even freeze it.  With Halloween coming up and everyone carving out pumpkins, this is something to keep in mind.

This dish itself was so creamy with a  hint of pumpkin flavour without being overpowering.  As much as I love pumpkin, I don’t always want it to stand out too much.  If you go crazy for it, you could always add a little more to the recipe.

And the best part about this recipe, it that it is quick.  With the very busy days I have been having lately, I am all for super quick food.  There will always be time for a lavish dinner when there is more time.  Um, waiting for that right about now.

Okay, I am off to enjoy Friday evening.  Happy Friday, happy cooking and see you all soon!
