Halloween RecipesPumpkin Mac & Cheese



Preheat oven to 400-degrees F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Cook elbow macaroni in a pot of salted boiling water until just tender but still firm. Reserve one cup of cooking liquid before draining elbow macaroni. Return elbow macaroni to cooking pot with reserved liquid; set aside. Sauce: Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat. Melt butter; gently whisk in flour and spices until mixture is smooth. Then whisk in the milk. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring, the then reduce heat to simmer. Whisk in pumpkin puree; fold in the cheddar and Swiss cheeses. After cheeses melt, add brown sugar, salt and black pepper to taste. Remove sauce from heat; fold into the macaroni. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Topping: In a bowl, combine olive oil, breadcrumbs and cheese. Sprinkle evenly over macaroni. Bake for about twenty-five minutes, or until top is bubbly and golden brown. Serve.


Note: Recipe makes about eight to ten servings. To prepare less, halve recipe ingredients.
