A savory pumpkin rosemary cream pasta recipe featuring authentic Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
This casarecce pasta is one of my favorites to use with any type of cheesy cream sauce, since it does a great job of holding the sauce. It’s important to mix the cream and the pumpkin together throughly before adding them to the heat, so you don’t get lumps of pumpkin.
Fast fact: Did you know that parmesan cheese is naturally lactose-free due to the long aging process? Read more on that here.
