  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, milk, margarine, onion powder, black pepper, salt, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger in a large skillet over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the drained pasta, and toss with the Parmesan cheese.

I really wanted this recipe to work out, but it didn't. The sauce was way too soupy. I would recommend making a roux before if you are daring enough to try this.

This was a great way to use up extra pumpkin and make a low-cost meal with things I generally have in my pantry. After reading reviews I decided to add some caramelized onions to this. I substit...

This was really bland. It didn't really taste like anything to me.

Made this to serve tonight as a side dish to a roasted chicken. I read some of the other reviews and was worried about it being too thin or soupy as they refer to it. I decided to use evaporated...
