  • Summary

    In Epi's 3-Ingredient Recipes series, we show you how to make great food with just three ingredients (plus staples like oil, salt, and pepper). The key to balancing the richness of the cream and the sweetness of the pumpkin in this simple sauce is salty, starchy pasta water. Remember, it should taste "salty like the sea."

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound whole wheat short pasta (such as penne, rigatoni, fusilli, or shells)
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided, plus more
    • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
    • 3/4 cup pure pumpkin purée
    • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided, plus more
