Tortellini with Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce

So tonight I was preparing dinner and The Fisherman walked in... his nose picked up on one of his favorites - sausage and peppers (because I knew I had to have some meat with this meal!).  Then he walked over to see what else I was making and he took a look at my magazine and said "Oh, you are making a kids' meal."  I'm like, no, but then I read the BIG letters that said Fun Cooking, Kids' Meal - don't know how I missed that!  But regardless of how it was marketed, we both loved this dish - he had it as a side and I had it as a main course.

I liked it because 1)  it was super easy and 2) the sauce had just the right amount of pumpkin and grated fresh nutmeg (I really suggest getting some of these - mine came from Penzey's Spices).  It's a dish away from the norm but one you'll probably make several times.  Enjoy!


  1. I'm all for anything with pumpkin and pasta! I know Danae will love this too!

  2. I had a bust with my pumpkin sauce recipe. It would be terrific if you would share yours this week on foodie friday.
