Pumpkin Alfredo

Made my first trip to the pumpkin patch this season! I was in search of the perfect pumpkin to eat rather than carve this time. I’ve never baked with a real pumpkin so it was the first thing on my list this Fall :) I was a little unsure about which kind of pumpkins are the ones you want to cook with, but the internet told me to look for the smaller, brighter ones that have a good stem and no serious blemishes or bruises. I picked two pretty ones and whipped up some homemade pumpkin puree. Which, by the way, is so much more simple than I had anticipated. Not to mention quite gratifying — Nico loves pumpkin puree and giving him a spoon full of the fresh stuff instead of something out of a can felt pretty special. ( yes, he’s spoiled but is there really any other option? ) Anyway, before feeding it all to my dog I made Pumpkin and Sage Alfredo Sauce. Yum! Check out the recipe and photos below and make some for yourself this fall! You won’t regret it :)

Despite the odds on my October 30th purchase, I managed to find three decent pumpkins and brought them home with me.
