This Pumpkin Tagliatelle Alfredo recipe is part of a sponsored collaboration with Nestle Media Crema. Thanks for reading and supporting the brands that make Savoir Faire possible.
Autumn is my favorite season, out of discussion. And I love all the things you can create out of pumpkins and squashes. When it comes to pumpkin, the recipes come out easy, without complications…
Take a look at this pumpkin tagliatelle Alfredo. This is the classic Alfredo sauce with a twist: lemon juice, which gives an interesting touch, to say the least, and pumpkin puree. Besides color, pumpkin puree adds lightness to this rich and unctuous pasta sauce.
Since last September we are having this pumpkin Alfredo pasta once a week. Not only because it is really good. Another main reason is that you can make dinner in less than 15 minutes: the sauce is made while the tagliatelle are being cooked, and when the pasta is almost al dente you finish the cooking in the sauce.
This was lunch a few weeks ago when my dearest fried and life sister Carru surprised me with a visit and we spent a wonderful afternoon and evening just like in the oldies.
This is the canned cream that I never lack, among other reasons because unlike fresh cream you do not need to refrigerate it.
It is the same cream I use to cook sweet and salty recipes.
