This time of year has me thinking all things pumpkin. Everything seems to be flavored with pumpkin these days, which makes me very happy. I love a good pumpkin spice latte or adding pumpkin flavored creamer to my coffee. Pumpkin bread and cookies always hit the spot. And I can never eat just one pumpkin brownie. I was in the mood recently to make something different. I grabbed a can of pumpkin and a box of macaroni and cheese. I combined the two and couldn’t believe how easy, simple, and amazingly delicious this dish was!
I liked this dish so much I’ve eaten it quite often since. You can make this pumpkin mac & cheese recipe with any kind of macaroni and cheese: homemade, boxed, bagged, etc. In fact, I have been using a box of organic mac and cheese to give the dish an even healthier spin.
I have to be honest and to say that for years I always wanted to try making pumpkin mac and cheese at home. I always thought it would be complicated and tricky and every year fall would pass and I never had a chance to try it. That’s why I’m thrilled to have discovered how easy this recipe is and I’ve been enjoying it so much since.

- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup 100% pure pumpkin
