I couldn't stop eating this. I seriously think that I had some for breakfast one morning!
It was also incredibly easy. The sauce was perfect!
The portions were huge for a small amount of calorie and I LIKE that!
The best part of course - it had bacon. Bacon makes EVERYTHING better!
Pumpkin Pasta with Bacon Recipe
Adapted from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice
6 Slices of turkey bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp. thyme
Salt and pepper
4 garlic cloves
14 oz. pasta (I used Rotini Barilla Plus)
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
1 cup of sour cream, light
Cook pasta. Drain and set aside.
Cook bacon. Drain on paper towels. Add onion to the same pan and cook for 6 - 7 minutes. Add thyme, salt, pepper and garlic and saute for about 2 minutes.
Add pasta to onions. Add pumpkin and sour cream, stir until combined. You may need to add some pasta water to it to get the right consistency. I didn't need to do this though.
Crumble bacon on the whole thing or just crumble enough on each portion.
