Pumpkin Fettuccini Alfredo

Once again, delicious! I am loving all of these yummy recipes I am finding this year! I got this one originally from The Messy Baker Blog and made a few adjustments based on what I had at home. For one… I added sausage. It just sounded good. The recipe below is what I ended up cooking but you are more than welcome to follow the original recipe in the link above. Her picture sure looks prettier than mine but it just tasted soooo good anyway. 🙂

Pumpkin Fettuccini Alfredo



1 lb italian sausage

1 red pepper, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 (15oz) can pumpkin

1/2 c. heavy cream

1 1/2c. chicken broth


chili powder


salt and pepper

Rice wine vinegar (just a dash)

fresh grated parmesan or white cheddar cheese

fettuccini noodles


Brown the sausage in a deep frying pan or sauce pan. Add onion and red pepper and cook until tender. Add garlic, pumpkin, chicken broth and heavy cream and bring to a slow boil. Add seasonings and rice wine vinegar to taste and let sauce simmer while you prepare the noodles (according to package instructions). Serve with fresh grated cheese to top it. Enjoy!
