Pasta With Pumpkin & Pesto
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
12 ingredients

I like things that are quick & easy to prepare & this is no exception. This is a nice quick meal. I usually use a chunky pasta like vegeroni or penne and you can cut down the fat by using light evaporated milk if you like, I usually do. For a vegetarian meal just leave out the bacon. Much to my amazement this was even a hit with my 17 month old daughter. Tastes great cold too so could be a pumpkin pesto pasta salad!
