One-Pot Pumpkin Pasta with Parmesan and Kale




00 min


00 min


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 small yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper

8 ounces spaghetti or linguini

4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock

1 (15-ounce) can pure pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)

1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves roughly chopped

Freshly shaved Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. In a large, straight-sided skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and sauté 1 minute.

  2. Add the pasta, chicken or vegetable stock, and pumpkin purée, season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. Continue boiling, stirring every 30 seconds or so and adjusting the heat as needed, for 7 minutes.

  3. Add the kale, reduce the heat to medium-high, and simmer, stirring frequently, until the pasta is al dente and the sauce is thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.

  4. Divide the pasta among bowls, sprinkle with the Parmesan, and serve.
