  • 6 ounces whole wheat penne pasta

  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree

  • ¾ cup low sodium chicken broth

  • ¼ cup nonfat milk

  • 1 teaspoon margarine

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pinch ground cloves

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch ground ginger

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  2. Heat the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, milk, margarine, onion powder, black pepper, salt, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger in a large skillet over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the drained pasta, and toss with the Parmesan cheese.
