A twist on a fall favorite, Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese, is perfect for those cool, crisp fall nights. Or really—anytime. This revamp of the classic comfort food mixes gooey Tillamook Cheese with savory, seasonal pumpkin. A sure way to leave all the table wanting more.

How To

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan.
  2. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain.
  3. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Slowly whisk in milk; cook until thick. Add pumpkin puree and mix well. Remove from heat. Add cheeses, salt, nutmeg (if using), and black pepper.
  4. Combine sauce with pasta. Pour into baking pan. Sprinkle with bread crumbs (if using), and bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes, until golden and bubbly.
Fun Twist
  1. Instead of cooking the mac in a pan, you could give the recipe a "Kitchen Confidante twist" and cook inside a mini pumpkin. Or you could serve the mac in a pumpkin if you would prefer to bake in a pan.
