Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked pasta (for 4 people)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 14 ounces white mushrooms chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup heavy/whipping
  • Handful fresh spinach
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)

Instructions

  • Boil a large pot of salted water for your pasta. Cook it according to package directions.
  • Add oil to a skillet on medium heat and sauté onions until they're slightly browned (about 10 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, chop mushrooms and then add them to the pan along with the garlic, mustard, and Italian seasoning. Cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the pumpkin, cream, and spinach. Cook for another few minutes until the spinach has wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Reserve some of the pasta water if you would like the sauce to be slightly thinner. Toss the sauce with the pasta and serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Notes

  • Serves 4-6.
