1 cup vegetable broth

1 tsp pepper flakes, optional.


DIRECTIONS:

Cook pasta according to box instructions.
In a large skillet heat the oil over medium to high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, just until fragrant. Add the pumpkin puree, vegetable broth and mix through. Add heavy cream, milk, nutmeg and salt and cook over medium heat stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes.
