“This one's so quick and easy, and its understated class makes it a fantastic entree at a dinner party. It's done the rounds between all my friends, and we love it as a quick and gorgeous dinner! This pasta tastes divine, it's quick, simple, looks beautiful, and if that's not enough, it's also incredibly budget-and waistline-friendly! Goes well visually and palatably with a fresh green salad.”

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and reserve.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm oil and cook pumpkin for about 10 minutes or until it begins to break apart.
  3. Add tomato paste, sour cream and chili powder to taste; mix well. The mixture should be mushy and an even golden-orange color.
  4. Scoop spoonfuls of the pumpkin mixture over the pasta; mix well to coat and serve.

Although I am a vegetarian, this recipe was too healthy tasting even for me! I did not find it easy (peeling and grating pumpkin takes time - even with a food processor!) or quick...It was also VERY squashy tasting.

I thought this was ok. I added a can of diced tomatoes because I knew my 5 year old would turn his nose up if it didn't look more like spaghetti. I also used canned pumpkin puree because I was searching for recipes to use a spare can I had in my pantry. I might make this again, but will doctor it up to fit our tastes.

I added more tomato paste and some tomato sauce- and some much-needed spices (salt/pepper/cumin/garlic). But was very tasty after a bit of tampering.
