One-Pot Pumpkin Turkey Pasta
Celebrating Thanksgiving and Fall
At Any Given Time During The Year

One-Pot Pumpkin Turkey Pasta....When fall is coming, it always makes me think of pumpkin patch, turkey and apple picking.  I am sure you would do the same if you live up north in the States.

Prep Time: 5-8 Minutes   Cook Time: 30-35 Minutes   Serving: 4-6



Honestly, I always want to cook something not only limit to certain period of time of the year, but also throughout the year.

At the same time, I would love to have a versatile recipe that I can make a dish that would perfectly feed my small family instead of a crowd of 8+ people. 

Listening to some stories of my co-workers, it hit home to think of families as small as mine.  If there is no extended family around, celebration of special holiday could be very limited.

But everybody loves to enjoy holiday atmosphere flowing in the air, right?  So, that was how this recipe, eventually, came to mind.

One-Pot Pumpkin Turkey Pasta Tips

Given ground turkey and canned pumpkin are available in supermarkets throughout the year, you can make this dish at any time.

My extended family hates onion.  If you happen to have family like mine, replace it with 1 tbsp onion powder. 

You can interchange ground turkey with ground chicken.
