In today’s world, we have a huge food waste problem and the Fall season is no different. There are SO many perfectly good pumpkins being tossed into the landfill when they could be donated to shelters, fed to animals, or turned into something as epic as this dish!

*p.s. If you want to learn how to make your very own homemade pumpkin puree, check out our latest blog post here. I promise you, homemade is so much better than the canned stuff and a GREAT way to avoid food waste from all of those “decoration pumpkins”. Woo hoo!

The best part about this healthy dinner recipe is the time: it could take as little as the cooking time on the package of your fettuccine noodles. While the pasta cooks, just whisk, boil, simmer, and then mix it all together! As a busy mom of two energetic little boys, this is a dream!

Ingredients

  • 16 oz fettuccine
  • 14 oz can coconut milk
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary or thyme
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Hemp/Pepita Seeds to garnish

Instructions

  • Cook pasta noodles according to the package directions.
  • In a saucepan, add the coconut milk, pumpkin puree, herbs and garlic powder and bring the heat to medium. Whisk very well and then add in the sea salt and pepper. Taste test and adjust as needed.
  • Raise the heat to medium-high. Once it begins to simmer, reduce the heat for just a few minutes to thicken up. 5 minutes should be fine.
  • Drain the pasta and then mix well with the pumpkin cream sauce.
  • Serve in 4 serving bowls and garnish with seeds. I love to serve with this some slices of sourdough bread.

Notes

**Feel free to use light or full fan coconut milk. I prefer the full fat but both are delicious.

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

Compostable Parchment Paper
The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love. Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.
