Isn’t my baby cousin the cutest!? She has multiple Halloween costumes today… such a princess already 🙂

Last night I made “Spooky Pasta” which used mainly healthy ingredients (minus the cheese!) and it was a big hit. It also includes Pumpkin and has a TON of protein… Good way to get your children to eat something different (or your husband).

Spooky Pasta

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces pasta (I used mung bean pasta which is Gluten Free and has 20 grams of protein per serving)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup rice milk (or whatever milk you use)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Cook the pasta as directed on the package.
  • Melt the butter in pan over medium heat, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.
  • Add the milk, broth, pumpkin puree, goat cheese, Parmesan and pumpkin pie spice and simmer until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  • Poor sauce over cooked pasta and serve on a plate.
  • Add 2 goat cheese circles for eyes. I had to use chocolate chips for the eyeball but an olive would work best!

Enjoy!
