Wild Eats: Homemade Pumpkin Pasta

It's pumpkin season! Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pasta...wait...PASTA? Yes, my friend. Pumpkin pasta. It's delicious, and surprisingly simple to make!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 3 cups of flour (i used whole wheat flour), plus a little extra for the rolling pin
  • 1 15oz can of pumpkin
  • Sea salt (for the water you cook the pasta in)

Here's what you do:

Pour the 3 cups of flour in a pile onto the center of a large cutting board. Make a hole in the center of the pile. Pour the pumpkin into the hole.

With your hands, mix the pumpkin and flour together until a stiff dough is formed. Then, divide the dough in half and set half aside, covering it with a clean towel so that it doesn't dry out.

Roll out the other half of dough so that it is super thin. Try to get it so that it is almost see-through...like...reeeaallly thin. Then, cut the rolled out dough into 1/4 inch wide strips. You can make the strips as long as you'd like your noodles to be.

Repeat with the other half of the dough.

Once you've cut your noodles, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles into the boiling water, a few at a time. Cook them for about 2-3 minutes. The noodles should float when they are ready.

Drain them, serve them up, and top them with your toppings of choice! I put a bit of butter and some grated Parmesan cheese on mine!

Enjoy!
