    Cannot wait for the cookbook! And I really want this dish. Need to finish up leftovers and then this is going on my grocery list.

    Pumpkin alfredo sauce, what a grand idea.

    This sounds amazing, I love that it’s pumpkin plus alfredo all in one. It’s a perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner for sure!

    Nutmeg and cheese are so good together, I always grate some on my grilled cheese sandwich. This looks beautiful, I love the pumpkin Alfredo idea! A perfect before trick-or-treat meal.

    I so love being inspired by all the pumpkin recipes this time of year! This would make a stellar contribution to the Shine Supper Club this month. I hope you’ll join us!

    I always feel a bit uncertain about savoury pumpkin dishes. But this one is just so intriguing, I’m willing to take the risk.

    Oh gosh. This looks dangerous in the most complementary way!

    I made this the other day and it was SO easy and tasty! I missed your note that you would add sage next time, and I think I agree. I will probably also add more cheese, or maybe mix in another, stronger cheese? But it was lovely, and my husband enjoyed it too, which is a win in my book. Thanks for sharing!

    Made this tonight, super delicious and easy. Great way to use up leftover pumpkin. I added some chopped spiral ham and used Romano cheese and 5% cream instead(cause I had it on hand ). Thanks for a great recipe

    Just made this – was so good!! Perfect for a quick evening meal.

    I had butternut squash ravioli on hand and added chicken/artichoke/smoked mozzerella sausages from the freezer in addition to a handful of ribboned kale and a splash of wine at the end. Seriously one of the best meals I’ve made in a while – thanks so much for posted the recipe!

    Wondering if it would work to make the sauce ahead of time and store in the fridge? I want to bring this to a potluck this Thursday but I don’t know if I have time to make it all that night; if I could make the sauce Wednesday and then just cook the tortellini and heat up the sauce, I could pull it off! 🙂

      Sorry I missed your comment. Did you end up reheating it okay?

    I’m curious why you didn’t cite your source. It’s taken almost word-for-word from The Food Network.

      Anonymous, thanks for pointing out that error! I always include sources but it would appear this time I forgot :/ I’m still getting used to my new recipe formatting with the new site design which has a special section for sources. Anyways, error fixed!

    I have made this several times now. The sauce is amazing. I add a little bit of sage and I substituted fat free half and half for the cream, since I’m trying to watch my intake. But it is so delicious and creamy I can’t get over it! Fantastic recipe.
