Tips and Tricks to make the perfect One Pan Creamy Bacon Pumpkin Pasta:

  • Use high quality pumpkin puree, as it’s the centerpiece of this dish. I like this one.
  • After you add your pasta, stir, stir, stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn.
  • Don’t overcook your pasta, mushy pasta doesn’t taste good.
  • Watch your bacon closely so it doesn’t burn! Add more or less based on your own preference.
  • This dish can me made with chicken or shrimp. After you remove the bacon from the pan, add the chicken or shrimp, cook and add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. No need to remove the chicken/shrimp from the pan.
  • The dish can be easily made vegetarian, use olive oil instead of the bacon and vegetable broth, instead of chicken broth.
  • The dish can be made vegan by using canned coconut milk instead of cream, vegetable broth and vegan cheese or nutritional yeast.
  • If the sauce its too thick, add more broth to thin it out.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 people
Author: Catalina Castravet
Ingredients
  • 10 slices bacon chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine I used Chardonnay
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8-10 ounces linguine spaghetti or fettuccine pasta
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Place a heavy duty pot or deep pan on the stove over medium-high heat. When the pot is hot, add the sliced bacon. You do NOT need oil to cook the bacon, it will release its own fat and cook in it. Stir the bacon often so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Once the bacon is cooked, remove it from the pan and set it aside.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add the butter to the pot with bacon fat.
  4. Add the chopped onion, cook for 1 minute and add the minced garlic. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes, until soft.
  5. Add the white wine, stir and cook for another minute.
  6. Add the pumpkin puree, stir to combine.
  7. Add the chicken broth, stir to combine.
  8. Add your pasta of choice, stir often and cook for 10 minutes, about 2 minutes less than based on package instructions. Cook for about two minutes less than required, as it will continue cooking after you add the cream.
  9. If the sauce is too thick add more broth.
  10. Add the heavy cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg, stir to combine and cook for 2-3 more minutes, until pasta is done, with an al dente texture. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  11. Turn of the heat, stir in the parmesan cheese and half of the cooked bacon.
  12. Serve immediately garnished with the remaining bacon.
  13. Enjoy!
