Have you ever had Pumpkin Alfredo Tortellini?

Its pretty much just your favorite filled tortellini pasta with a simple creamy, homemade Alfredo sauce made with fresh pumpkin.

It is SOOOOOOOOOOO delicious!


This recipe is so family friendly and great for any crazy weekday night dinner.  I mean who turns down cheese tortellini in homemade Alfredo sauce… plus it adds pumpkin goodness which we are all about on ThatsSoYummy this season.

You guys remember when I showed you how to make fresh Homemade Pumpkin Puree.  That was so easy…right?

Well now add that to this recipe and now you would have hit it out the park with two awesome delicious pumpkin recipes. :-)







That bowl is a bowl full of yumiliciousness!!!!!!

Pumpkin Alfredo Tortellini

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, unsalted
  • 1 small Shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup Fresh Pumpkin Puree or canned Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 1/4 cups Heavy Cream
  • A pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese, plus more for topping
  • Freshly ground pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Then add a heaping hand of salt. Add the tortellini and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and garlic, cook, stirring, until slightly soft, about 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and nutmeg and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in the cream and bring to a low boil. Add red pepper flakes. Reduce the heat to medium low; simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and cook until thick, about 1 more minute. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the tortellini to the skillet and toss with the sauce, adding some of the reserved cooking water to loosen, if needed. Serve and Enjoy!

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

2 Nov 2015 In: Recipes



Pumpkins, Pumpkins everywhere… Pumpkins Pumpkins have no fear!

I don’t about you but do you remember how I said a few weeks ago, when I shared Pumpkin Spice French Toast, everywhere I turn I see pumpkins surrounding me.

Well, it’s still true.

From big ones, to small ones, to medium size carving ones.  Pumpkin season is out in full force.  Not only are pumpkins great for craving and making silly, scary faces… but they are even better when roasted and used to bake and cook with.


I used to always buy canned pureed pumpkin, now don’t get me wrong I still use the canned stuff… but sometimes making your own is even better.

Homemade Pumpkin Puree is so simple and easy to make, you will find yourself running to the store and buying a pie pumpkin to bake.

CHocolate CHip Cookie Ice Cream SUndaes

There’s something about ice cream sundaes that make me feel like a BIG kid again!

Maybe its the simple easy chocolate chip cookie cups I made in the muffin pan, easy as 1, 2, 3.  Or maybe its scoops of my favorite ice cream on top of my cookie cups drizzled with chocolate fudge shell, then sprinkled with colored jimmies and let’s not forget the cherry!


Whatever it is I’m loving it!

The best thing about these ice cream sundaes are that they are inside a chocolate chip cookie cup — that you can eat — that’s right, you can eat the sundae and the bowl, the whole thing!!!

I bet I got you grinning from ear to ear now! 😀
