This healthy pumpkin pasta is just as easy as making a box of mac and cheese, but packs in a lot more nutrients, and more protein, too!
Cook pasta according to package instructions.
While pasta cooks, in a large, microwave-safe bowl, heat 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup butter, and 2 tbsp water for 30-60 seconds, or until butter is melted. Stir together, then add garlic powder, onion powder, and optional salt.
Drain pasta when cooked, and toss well with pumpkin sauce.
