Pumpkin Pasta with Fried Garlic Chips


For the garlic chips:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, sliced into thin pieces

For the pasta:
1 pound gemelli pasta
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cups chicken broth
15-ounce can pumpkin puree
2 bay leaves
Pinch of cumin
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup, grated Parmesan cheese, plus additional cheese for serving


Heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat.  Fry the slices of the first clove of garlic briefly in oil, pulling them out after 60 seconds.  Place the fried garlic on a paper towel and reserve.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and cook the according to the package instructions. Drain.

In the meantime, in a medium skillet, heat the garlic, shallots and olive oil until tender and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, bay leaves and additional salt if desired (taste first).  Cook until the sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes, and then stir in the Parmesan cheese and heavy cream.  Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, remove the bay leaves, and then toss the sauce with the pasta, and serve with additional cheese and topped with the garlic chips.

Serves four.

    This looks so delicious! I’m a (relatively) newcomer to your wonderful blog and only just saw this, but it looks like the link has stopped working. Do you know where I could find the recipe now?
