I ran out my pumpkin spice to add to my vanilla protein shake and found this at the grocery store. It contains cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. SO delicious!

Ingredients

8 ounces of your choice of pasta***
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 cup pure pumpkin puree (I used canned)
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp half and half (Exclude for a vegan recipe.)
1 cup vegetable broth
pinch ground nutmeg
Cracked black pepper and salt to taste
2 cups baby spinach, heaping
1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
Parmesan cheese (Optional; Use crushed walnuts for a vegan recipe.)

Instructions

Cook the pasta and set aside but keep it warm.

While the pasta cooks, bring a large skillet to medium heat and add the olive oil and minced garlic. Cook just until fragrant. Whisk in the tomato paste, pumpkin, and half and half. Add the vegetable broth. Stir and let cook on low about 5 minutes.

Add the spinach. Cook until it lightly wilts.

Stir in pasta and toss to coat. Sprinkle with walnuts and Parmesan, if desired and serve.

***You can use spaghetti squash, zucchini noodles, Miracle noodles, shiratake noodles or any low carb noodles for a reduced calorie/sugar version.
