This creamy, rich Pumpkin Alfredo is super easy to come together without the calories of your usual Alfredo sauce. A perfect fall dish for an easy weeknight meal. A delicious velvety, smooth pasta dish that you’ll crave over and over again.


1 pound fettuccine cooked to al dente, reserve 1 cup of pasta water
6 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves minced
1 cup pumpkin puree, not pie filling
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup half & half
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese off the block
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley


Step 1: Over high heat, bring a stock of water to a boil. Once boiling, add in a tsp of salt, then, add in the fettuccine. Cook according to package direction until al dente. Set aside a cup of pasta water before draining.

Step 2: In the meantime, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

Step 3: Saute the garlic and cook for about a minute, being careful not to burn the garlic.

Step 4: Pour in the half-and-half followed by the Parmesan, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Mix well until the sauce has heated through and the cheese has melted.

Step 5: Then, add in the pasta water, 1/4 cup at a time until you reached your desired consistency. Adding about half a cup will make your sauce thick and creamy or use more pasta water for a thinner consistency.

Step 6: Finally, stir in the cooked pasta and continue to cook for about a minute or two more over medium-high heat until the sauce is smooth and the pasta is well coated.

Step 7: Serve in bowls. If desired, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and fresh grated Parmesan.

Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
