Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

 

Since pumpkin season is upon us and there’s abundance at the grocery stores, here’s a yummy recipe which I can’t get enough of.

What You Will Need:

–   2 cups of uncooked elbow macaroni

–   ¼ cup of butter

–   ¼ cup of flour

–   2 cups of milk

–   ½ tsp of salt

–   ¼ tsp of pepper

–   1 tsp of Dijon mustard

–   ¼ tsp of ground nutmeg

–   1 cup of pumpkin puree

–   2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 350°F.

2.   Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta as directed on the package.

3.   While you’re waiting for the pasta to cook, melt the butter in a pan and slowly stir the flour in.

4.   On low heat, stir in the milk and let simmer until everything has become thick.

5.   Now stir in the salt, pepper, mustard, nutmeg and pumpkin puree.

6.   Next, add 1 ¾ cups of the cheddar cheese.  Continue to stir until the cheese is melted.

7.   Drain the water from the pasta and then add the macaroni to the cheese sauce.

8.   Once the pasta is completely covered in the cheese sauce, pour into a 3-quart casserole dish.  Add the remaining cheddar cheese and bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes.

Enjoy!

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
