You can roast a pumpkin and scoop out the flesh. But canned pumpkin is pretty good.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Alex Guarnaschelli's Pumpkin Pasta with Winter Herbs & Parmesan Cheese | The Kitchen | Food Network" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/hP82Lth_8vI?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <h2>The chef’s recipe is a delicious weeknight meal</h2> <p>The chef browns the butter, all 10 tablespoons of it, in a saucepan. It’s moved to a large skillet where the sliced garlic is browned in it. “We’re just building this nice and easy,” Guarnaschelli says in the Food Network video for the recipe.</p> <p>A “dollop” of the fresh ginger goes in, about two grated teaspoons of it because, as the chef colorfully explains, “the canned pumpkin needs a little hair and makeup.” Speaking of which, the entire can of pumpkin is poured into the garlic and ginger mixture, “pulling it toward the savory. And that’s kind of a fun idea. There are a lot of sweets at Halloween. Here, we’ve got the garlic, a little pepper, salt, all these things are pulling it in a more savory direction.”</p> <p>She adds “a tiny pinch” of brown sugar, ladling in as well some of the starchy pasta water to the sauce as the fusilli cooks. “We do that to grab a little bit of the starch that’s coming out of the pasta, and pull it back into our dish,” the chef says. “I’m adding that pasta water just to get it to the consistency we want.”</p> <p>Guarnaschelli stirs in the grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper to taste and adds the cooked fusilli to the sauce, tossing it all together. Topping off this exquisite yet simple pasta dish are the sage and rosemary leaves, which the chef fried first to release their aroma.</p> <p>Get the complete recipe, video, and reviews <a href="https://ift.tt/mWCPHGQ" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">on Food Network’s site</a>.</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="qst" dir="ltr">Yes <a href="https://ift.tt/kgapIJ6>— alex guarnaschelli (@guarnaschelli) <a href="https://twitter.com/guarnaschelli/status/1449394615916847110?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 16, 2021</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div></figure> <h2>Guarnaschelli’s pumpkin pasta was praised by home cooks</h2> <p>The beauty of the <em>Alex vs. America</em> star’s pumpkin pasta recipe is that its velvety sauce pulls you in, as Food Network reviewers noted.</p> <p>“AMAZING!  Tried it today for the first time and I loved it.  (Even my husband who professes to “hate” pumpkin loved it)  Definitely a keeper!,” one person wrote.</p> <p>And other fans of the recipe added, “This is so delish! Don’t skip the frying of the fresh herbs, so worth it!! Comes together so quick, easy weeknight dinner!” and “This was a huge hit for dinner with adults and kids alike.
