Pumpkin Mac 'N Cheese

It's no secret. My family loves pasta and the cheesier the better. This quick delicious dish (SNL anyone?) is a keeper. I found it on Pioneer Woman's website Tasty Kitchen. The original recipe calls for butternut squash, but pumpkin was on sale. The pumpkin was fabulous, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the squash would be even better!

Pumpkin Mac 'N Cheese
2 c. small pasta
1 T. butter
1 T. flour
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar
2 T. cream cheese
1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
1/8 t. paprika

While pasta is cooking, Melt butter in medium sauce pan. Whisk in flour. Whisk for 2 minutes. Slowly add milk while whisking lumps.
Add remaining ingredients. Stir. Add sauce to pasta and serve.
