Pumpkin Lovin

Don't you hate it when you use a recipe that calls for a portion of something, like half a can of such and such and then you are left with a random opened can wondering what you will use the rest for? Well here are two recipes that are a great compliment to each other! Get yourself a can of pumpkin puree; use 1/2 cup of it for the first recipe and then the remaining cup for the second recipe.

Fettuccine with Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce
This was very good. Don't be scared by the pumpkin alfredo was subtle and the color was gorgeous. I made this according to the recipe and didn't include any meat, but it would have been great with chicken in it.

Finish it off with this:

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Cake
This cake was really easy to whip up and tasted great. It was similar in taste to a Pumpkin Roll Cake but not as rich or as complicated to make.

I'm noting both of these recipes. The Guiltless Alfredo Sauce is actually the only alfredo sauce I use, fun to see how they've added a twist to it. The cake looks and sounds delish!

The cake turned out truly scrumptious -- I'm getting my glucose test tomorrow (to see if I have gestational diabetes) and I'm seriously considering having a tiny piece tonight -- even though I shouldn't be eating too much sugar the day before the test. It's tempting!!!
