Use a box of whole grain Mac n Cheese. We like Annie’s, or Kraft, or Hodgson Mill, or you could get all fancy and make some from scratch (in which case this is not as easy as pumpkin pie). So put your noodles on to boil, and saute up some Kale (that maybe you blanched and froze), and throw in some chicken sausage too while you’re at it (unless you don’t eat meat, and then don’t do that).
Once your noodles are done and you have followed the instructions to stir in cheese and milk, and salt n’ pepa (Shoop ba-doop ba-doop ba-doop). Then add in your sautéed kale and sausage, and 1 cup of canned pumpkin. STIR! Add little more milk, because it will get kinda thick. Then eat it, and be thankful for fall, and pumpkins, and husbands who made it all for you (because mine did)
