Cheesy, creamy Pumpkin Sausage Mac and Cheese has the smooth, flavorful addition of pumpkin, combined with the savory cheesy flavor of a traditional Mac and Cheese with savory sausage slices.
Well, we are halfway through Pumpkin Week and today I brought this recipe for Pumpkin Sausage Mac and Cheese and is absolutely fabulous!
I wanted to switch over to savory for at least one recipe this week and so I placed it smack dab in the middle of the week.
I made this Pumpkin Sausage Mac and Cheese recently, and my daughter who was quite skeptical about putting pumpkin in mac and cheese (she’s a traditionalist, what can she say) was absolutely sold from the first bite and literally cleaned the plate off in like 3 minutes.
Yes, it’s really that good.
All the perfect things about Mac & Cheese – creamy, cheesy and full of great flavor. We love this version and we are pretty sure you will too.
A few years back, I made this Pumpkin Ravioli with a Roasted Garlic Brown Butter Sauce and it has been a tried and true favorite for years. So if you’re looking for a savory pumpkin recipe, either of these will do.
Anyway, let’s get to making this creamy goodness! Are you ready? I know I am!
