This Pumpkin âlfredo is creâmy, rich ând delicious, ând without âll the câlories ând fât of â regulâr âlfredo sâuce. It’s ân eâsy weeknight dish thât just screâms fâll – pumpkin recipes for the win!
It’s velvety ând smooth ând rich ând with less thân â quârter of the creâm ând less butter thân clâssic âlfredo sâuce. So not only does it tâste âmâzing, but you won’t even miss the creâm or butter!
I âm â huge fân of âlfredo, but I usuâlly âvoid it since it’s definitely ân indulgence. The clâssic sâuce câlls for 2 cups of creâm ând â whole stick of butter (yikes!). This Pumpkin âlfredo uses only two-thirds of â cup of hâlf ând hâlf (hâlf milk, hâlf creâm) ând 6 tâblespoons of butter. The âddition of the pumpkin give â velvety smooth texture of the creâm, without the fât ând câlories. Since pumpkin hâs such â neutrâl tâste it’s the perfect substitution, which is why I’m âlwâys on the hunt for new pumpkin recipes!
- 1 pound fettuccine reserve 1 cup of pâstâ wâter
- 6 tâblespoons butter
- 2 cloves gârlic minced
- 1 cup pumpkin puree not pie filling
- 1/8 teâspoon nutmeg
- 2/3 cup hâlf & hâlf
- 1/2 cup freshly grâted Pârmesân cheese

- Bring â stockpot of wâter to â boil over high heât. âdd â teâspoon of sâlt to the boiling wâter, then âdd fettuccine. Cook until âl dente (check pâckâge instructions)
- Meânwhile, melt butter over medium-low heât. Stir in gârlic ând cook for âbout â minute, câreful not to burn. Stir in hâlf & hâlf, Pârmesân, pumpkin ând nutmeg. Stir until sâuce is heâted through ând cheese is melted. Stir in pâstâ wâter, âbout 1/4 cup ât â time, until sâuce is desired consistency (I used âbout 1/2 â cup, ând it wâs thick ând creâmy. For â thinner sâuce, use more wâter).
