20 Minute One Pot Pumpkin Parmesan Pasta


  • 8 oz spaghetti (1/2 of a 1 pound box)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (make sure it’s the pure pumpkin puree, not the pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup milk (we used whole milk, but any kind works!)


  1. Add your water to a large non-stick skillet and bring to a boil
  2. Add your pasta and season the water with salt. Push the spaghetti down until the pasta has softened a bit and it’s all under water. Boil for 8-9 minutes, or until the pasta is tender, stirring often (especially the last few minutes as there is less water)
  3. Meanwhile, while the pasta is cooking, grate your cheese and measure out your pumpkin and milk
  4. When the pasta is done, stir in your remaining ingredients (the pumpkin, parmesan cheese, and milk)
  5. Season to taste and serve!
