Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Pumpkin is the flavor of fall, with Dunkin Donut's pumpkin coffee topping my list.  I recently came across this recipe for pumpkin macaroni and cheese in a supplemental magazine from our local newspaper and was immediately drawn.

I pretty much followed the recipe completely, however, I used the entire box of pasta and increased the measurements of the cheeses, pumpkin and milk by the slightest bit.     

Rather than using a 9x13 baking dish, I used two nine-inch cake pans.  Prior to placing them in the oven, I topped each with Italian breadcrumbs, some leftover Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil. 

The result?  Delicious!  The pumpkin flavor wasn't overpowering, but it worked just enough to give this old-fashioned dish a modern twist.   

For another fun recipe using pumpkin, try my Pumpkin Muffin in a Mug.

What are you making with pumpkin this season?
