Halloween Pasta

Serves: 8

This pasta can be eaten any time but is best for Halloween. I like to top it off with toasted pumpkin seeds.

Total Time:


2 cups halloween-shaped pasta
2 cups wagon wheel-shaped pasta
2 1/2 cups peeled chopped pumpkins
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon chopped onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (4-ounce) can sliced black olives
1 (8-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons dried oregano


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook Halloween-shaped and wagon wheel-shaped pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to a large bowl.

Place pumpkin in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return pumpkin to pot. Add nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon garlic, onion, chili powder, and 3 tablespoons olive oil; stir to coat.

Toss olives and garbanzo beans into cooked pasta. Add 1/4 cup garlic, Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup olive oil, and oregano. Toss to coat; top with pumpkin mixture.
