ABOUT One pot pumpkin penne pasta RECIPE

Have you ever tried pumpkin puree in pasta? If not then please do try as this tastes very delicious! Here have tried with homemade pumpkin puree which you could store in refrigerator for 10 days or you could even try with ready made pumpkin puree too. Also this is my first try in pasta to work on only one pot, so you don't need to first boil pasta separately, here everything I've done in one pot only, no mess at all!
