Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound pumpkin - peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 9 ounces penne pasta
  • 6 ounces bacon, cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese, or more to taste


  1. Heat oil in a pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Add pumpkin and garlic; continue cooking for 3 minutes. Add chicken stock and nutmeg; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until pumpkin is tender, about 10 minutes more.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to serving bowls.
  3. Mix bacon and parsley into pumpkin mixture; cook, stirring frequently, until bacon is cooked, 2 to 5 minutes. Add cream and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes more. Spoon sauce over pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.
